Coffee Education 101: Vietnamese Coffee

Vietnamese Coffee at Bawai with dessert
Vietnam is one of the biggest coffee producers in the world so it is not surprising that they have their own way of serving coffee. Finely ground Vietnamese-grown dark roast coffee is individually brewed with a small metal Vietnamese drip filter (as shown on pic) into a cup containing about a quarter to a half condensed milk.

The pic was taken at a Vietnamese restaurant in Tagaytay, Philippines called Bawai. My partner and I came here on a weeknight so we were the only customer. I wanted to try this restaurant since I saw it featured on TV, but honestly the food was a hit or a miss like that green dessert on the photo. I do remember enjoying the prawns pierced with succulent sugar cane stick. The rest of my meal was forgettable though.  The emptiness of the resto, which is on the second floor of an old house (perfect location for a ghost movie!!!), didn't help either.
