Drink pairing tips

  • A great drink pairing for banh mi

    Knowing what to pair with banh mi can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some white wine, particularly a glass of Kabinett. This, sweet, white wine balances the spicy banh mi.

  • Pair banh mi with Cilantro Chile Cooler

    For an elevated experience, pair your banh mi with Cilantro Chile Cooler. This combination works particularly well because this cocktail cuts through the fattiness of the sandwich.


  • Mangose and banh mi


    If your food palns include Banh mi, then you should consider helping it along with some beer. We find that a Mangose, with its hits of fruit, serves as the best pairing to the dish.

  • A taste for luxury
