Drink pairing tips

  • Pair Riesling with banh mi

    A banh mi can be tricky to find a white wine pairing for. We would suggest trying Riesling. It will pair nicely with the food and complete the meal thanks to its dry.

  • A next-level pairing for Kabinett

    Experts recommend pairing a banh mi with a glass of Kabinett, a popular white wine.

  • Pair banh mi with Muscat de Alexandria

    For an elevated experience, pair your banh mi with Muscat de Alexandria. This combination works particularly well because this white wine cuts through the fattiness of the meat.
