Drink pairing tips

  • The ideal drink pairing for banh mi

    Knowing what to pair with banh mi can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some white wine, particularly a glass of Kabinett. This, sweet, white wine balances the spicy banh mi.

  • The perfect complement to grilled fish steak


    Experts recommend pairing a grilled fish steak with a glass of Prosecco, a popular sparkling wine.

  • Mangose with your 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.

  • Name a more iconic duo: red wine & teriyaki sauce
