Sip a 'ca phe sua da'

It is not an overstatement to say that iced coffee with milk (ca phe sua da) shows an special and unique aspect of Vietnamese culture, especially in Saigon. The mere mention of the beverage is sufficient to conjure up a certain romantic sense – there is a truly popular song around here named Saigon Ca Phe Sua Da (Saigon iced coffee with milk) that manages to pack the real passion of Saigon people have towards the drink.

Owning a large coffee growing area and outstanding quality, Vietnam is the largest coffee exporting country in the world – and it is available nearly everywhere and inexpensive. Iced black coffee (ca phe den da) is sweet and strong with an almost chocolate-like richness. You can add on some condensed milk to have iced coffee with milk (ca phe sua da) 

In Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), on literally almost every street Vietnamese coffee can be sold at small outdoor stalls on the sidewalk, which are often managed by ladies. Small stools are put on the pavement for guests to help themselves with the coffee. Regarless of the tropical heat, fierce sun, tooting motorists, and afternoon downpours, most people actually are interested in drinking coffee on the sidewalk.

When you are tired or exhausted of the burning heat and want to enjoy some iced coffee milk (ca phe sua da) in an air-conditioned place in a moment, stopping at a shop belonging to Highlands Coffee, Phuc Long, Trung Nguyen or chains would be a good choice. Ưith high reputation and good quality of coffee, professional serving style, they are called the Starbucks in Vietnam. Certainly, it is going to be higher cost in a cafe than on the sidewalk but the coffee quality is really better, they all provide Wi-Fi and air conditioning and the seats are much more comfortable on your back.
