Drink pairing tips

  • Pair Cilantro Chile Cooler with banh mi

    When considering what goes best with banh mi, we recommend a glass of Cilantro Chile Cooler, it truly complements the dish as it cuts through the fattiness of the sandwich.


  • The perfect match for banh mi

    Experts recommend pairing a banh mi with a glass of Mangose, a popular beer.

  • Go for Kabinett with banh mi

    To elevate your banh mi experience, we recommend some Kabinett to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this white wine cools the jalapeno with the sweetness of the wine.
