Coffee review… for a wee change

Coffee in Vietnam

Coffee in Vietnam

Location: On Ly Tu Trong, near Ben Thanh Market, Ho Chi Minh City

Date/Time: 30th October, about 5.45am as we just got off the sleeper train.

Variety of Tea: Vietnamese drip coffee (Okay I know we’re on a tea journey but Vietnam is ALL about the coffee)

Cost: 10,000 Dong (about 35p) including a pot of iced Vietnamese tea for Adam

Service: Friendly albeit mostly in sign language. I also got my sandals repaired AND cleaned with toothbrush for a dollar!

Taste: Strong and rich, good for keeping me awake until hotel check in at 12pm! If you look closely you can see the layer of condensed milk at the bottom making it oh so sweet.

Ambiance: Outside in the early morning sun with locals whizzing past on their scooters going to work. Great spot for people watching.

Shadam rating: 7/10. We could quite happily sit and watch the world go by for ages but the wee plastic chairs got a bit sore after a while.

    spoonsful – or is it spoonfuls – of evaporated milk.
