The French had a lot to do with this awesome coffee. It is usually dripped through a French drip filter which can easily be put on a small coffee cup. I always wondered what makes Vietnamese coffee so much stronger than other coffee (in my opinion). It never fails to keep me up in the wee hours of the night. If my research does me justice, most Vietnamese coffee uses Robusta beans that has about 50% more caffeine. It is a dark roast. The way they brew their coffee through the drip has some influence on its strength.
The Vietnamese coffee is usually iced with condensed milk, which to me is better for my liking. Vietnam is one of the top importers of coffee beans after Brazil. Its climate has made it the perfect place to grow coffee, and its unique coffee is one for any coffee lovers to try. Of all coffee, Vietnamese coffee is my favorite. I can’t wait to go back to Vietnam.
There’s this korean restaurant we go to a lot. The waiter knows I love my soymilk and he remembers to give me a straw.
Soybeans have essential amino acids necessary to make a complete protein. Its probably the only plant that has all of them. The best source is animal meat. So if you’re a vegetarian, this is good to know since many other plants lack an essential amino acid.
Chrysanthemum Tea aka “gop fa cha” in canto. 菊花茶
