Drink pairing tips

  • A great 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.

  • Enjoy banh mi with Cilantro Chile Cooler

    For an elevated experience, pair your banh mi with Cilantro Chile Cooler. This combination works particularly well because this cocktail cuts through the fattiness of the sandwich.

  • Pair Riesling with 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.


  • All in a day’s work

    Are you a fan of prime rib? The current record for eating the most prime rib is 23 pounds! Do you love prime rib enough to beat this record?

  • A day for salad-lovers

    In The United States, salad-lovers come together annually on July 4 to celebrate National National Caesar Salad Day .

  • Priceless or overpriced?
