Drink pairing tips

  • Pair banh mi with Cilantro Chile Cooler

    To elevate your banh mi experience, we recommend some Cilantro Chile Cooler to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this cocktail cuts through the fattiness of the sandwich.

  • The perfect match for banh mi

    Experts suggest pairing a banh mi with a glass of Muscat de Alexandria, a popular white wine.


  • 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.
