Burger King Whopper: Cru Beaujolais
McDonald's Filet-o-Fish and Fries: A sweeter Riesling
KFC Fried Chicken: Cotes du Rhone
Arby's Roast Beef: Cabernet Sauvignon
So this got me thinking. I don't really do fast food, except for White Castle maybe a couple of times a year. And I've never had wine with my WC sliders.
Let's analyze this; nondescript salty, greasy meat flavors with mushy consistency, dominated by what should be "supporting" flavors of grilled onion and dill pickle. Doesn't that sound good?
Although I've never had it, I bet dry sparkling wines or Champagnes, either white or pink, would go great with White Castle sliders - as long as you don't get them with cheese. You should NEVER get sliders, at least White Castles, with cheese. They shouldn't even offer cheese as an option. The fries are fine. I feel very strongly about this.
So, the dilemma is, do you really want to spend $20 or more for Sparkling wine with your $5 White Castle meal?
Beer works too.
