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.

  • Pair Kabinett with banh mi

    When considering what goes best with banh mi, we recommend a glass of Kabinett, it truly complements the dish as it cools the jalapeno with the sweetness of the wine.

  • Riesling and banh mi

    Not sure what white wine to drink with your banh mi? Try Riesling. The dry flavors will pair nicely with the food and complete the meal.
