Drink pairing tips

  • The perfect complement to banh mi

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

  • Enjoy 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.

  • Kabinett and banh mi

    The sweet flavors in Kabinett makes it a great white wine to pair with banh mi.

Did you know?

  • A match made in heaven: green tea & sushi

    If you’re gonna be eating sushi, then we’d advise washing it down with a nice green tea.

  • All in a day’s work

    Molly Schuyler knows that you can never have too much of a good thing. They proved this by eating 23 pounds of prime rib, setting a world record in the process!

  • A tasty first

    The burrito was only thought up in 1900s! We wonder what people ever did without some good burrito in their lives...
