Is there any coffee shop selling Vietnamese coffee in London?

Recommended Posts

I've read an article on BBC which shows Vietnamese food (especially 'banh mi' - Vietnamese bread) is currently having a strong position in London. How about coffee? Is there any coffee shop in London which serves Vietnamese coffee?:confused:

I don't know for sure but I would doubt there are many. Vietnamese restaurants do serve ca phê in phins but it's a bit of a way off what people here are used to in terms of coffee. As 97% of V coffee is robusta it's unlikely to feature highly in speciality coffee shops - though there may well be cafes that cater for the Vietnamese community in London.

Guilty pleasure. Vietnamese coffee with sweetened condensed milk. I hang my head in shame but I always have one at Tampopo here in Manchester

There was a large stall on Broadway Market [East London] that served all sorts of Vietnamese street food, especially bahn mi.

They did serve the famous Vientnamese coffee too, with the thick condensed milk option etc.

 

I think they are only there in warmer months, as they had a large seating area of deckchairs.

Yup, it seems that Vietnamese in London focus on food & beverage sector. Vietnamese Iced Coffee is very popular in Vietnam and is consumed nationwide. However, many foreign coffee drinkers claim that Vietnam Iced Coffee contains too much condensed milk (or sugar). As a most popular catering habit, local Vietnamese often enjoy a cup of iced coffee after having 'banh mi' (Vietnamese bread).

I've had some lovely meals in Pho and some other Vietnamese restaurants, but when I tried the coffee (black in a phin, no condensed milk or sugar) - it was totally undrinkable.

 

Banh Mi? Be careful what you wish for LOL!

@hotmeal, many foreign coffee drinkers have claimed that Vietnamese coffee in a local coffee shop is so unconsistent. Drinking coffee in Vietnam, thus, is somewhat like drawing a lottery. I think your feeling of "undrinkable" can be from this reason. In the other reason, I think the shop owner might get the wrong coffee from Vietnam as many local Vietnamese coffee brands contain a lot of burnt soyabeans and chemicals.

Banh Mi Bay, right opposite Mansion house station both sells and serves Vietnamese coffee (as well as food).
