Vietnam is the second-largest coffee producer in the world, so it’s not surprising that the drink is a huge part of the country’s culture. Visitors looking to get a taste of traditional Vietnamese coffee should head to Phuc Long.
This coffeehouse chain is one of the most famous in the country, with branches throughout Ho Chi Minh City. The cafe features all sorts of coffee and espresso drinks, including typical Vietnamese-style coffee — made with condensed milk, which sweetens it a bit, and often served on ice. The combination of strong coffee and sweet, icy milk provides a great way to beat the humidity and heat in this part of Southeast Asia.
Phuc Long also specializes in a wide variety of teas — some of its most popular kinds include peach and lychee.
Online reviewers rave about Phuc Long coffee and teas with an almost cult-like fervor. A stop at Phuc Long is the perfect way for visitors to get an introduction into Vietnam’s coffee culture. Just be warned: This delicious brew can become addictive.
