Vietnamese coffee is addictive but getting one is a fairly lengthy affair. First you get tea, iced tea usually, most coffee shops serve up a glass of this along with the menu. Then comes the coffee in a little metal filter, slowly, very slowly, dripping into a glass containing condensed milk. Once all the coffee has worked the way through the filter you need to stir the conconction well before pouring it over ice.
Posher places like Highlands Coffee serve it ready made but I like the waiting. Iced black coffee is available too for times when such a sugar rush isn't required.
