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 Muscat de Alexandria, a popular white wine.

  • Go for Kabinett with banh mi

    For an elevated experience, pair your banh mi with Kabinett. This combination works particularly well because this white wine cools the jalapeno with the sweetness of the wine.

    How much pho could you finish in 3 minutes? Get out of Jesse Freeman way because they ate 6 pounds.

  • A traditional dish

  • The priciest dish

    The most expensive Vietnamese coffee costs a whopping$80! Would you be willing to pay$80 for a fancy kopi luwak?
