Good Iced Coffee

 

Long before today’s coffee merchants started selling their versions of iced lattes, iced coffees and iced mochas the Vietnamese were brewing up a deeply flavorful, rich and satisfying iced coffee drink with condensed milk.  Once you try one of these versions of iced coffee, you just might want to make this your morning stop instead of you know where.:-)

In San Diego you can find these delicious coffees at most Vietnamese restaurants and sandwich shops.  My favorite place to buy this truly flavorful iced coffee has always been the Sau Voi Deli.  It’s the little sandwich shop inside Ranch 99 Market on Clairemont Mesa Blvd.–7330 Clairemont Mesa Blvd.  It is a little shop directly on the right as you walk in the front door. (They happen to have great sandwiches too by the way.  The vegetarian version is my favorite.)

(And long before there was the frappucino there was the New England Frappe, but that’s another story.:-)
