Drink pairing tips

  • Pair Cilantro Chile Cooler with banh mi

    When considering how to best enjoy your banh mi, we would highlight how well a glass of Cilantro Chile Cooler complements the dish as it cuts through the fattiness of the sandwich.


  • Pair Mangose with 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.

  • The ideal drink pairing for banh mi

    Finding the ideal drink pairing for 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.
