Vietnamese/Thai Coffee Recipee

I love Vietnamese food! There's nothing like a hot bowl of pho (Vietnamese noodle soup) and an ice coffee to go with it. I could never figure out how to make both because no matter how many times I tried, it never came out as good as at a Vietnamese restaurant.

Finally, though, I found a recipee for Thai coffee that tastes exactly like it. I am pretty sure it is the same exact thing. For those of you that love Vietnamese or Thai coffee, here's a recipe you need to try!
Thai Iced Coffee
Ingredients: 4 servings

1/4 C instant coffee
2 C hot water
1/4 C sweetened condensed milk
1/4 C evaporated milk

ice cubes

1. Dissolve instant coffee in hot water

2. Combine coffee with sweetened condensed milk and evaporated milk
3. Pour the coffee mixture into ice filled glasses.
For those of you who prefer to use Vietnamese coffee, I would recommend the following (see illustration below): Cafe Du Monde
The brand, Cafe Du Monde, seems to often times be used in Vietnamese restaurants. However, it is not instant coffee! If you would like to use this type of coffee, make sure you filter it first.
You can purchase filters at any grocery store (for the most part). You'll also need to get a special cup, so that the coffee can drain into it.
Put 1/4 c coffee grinds into the coffee cup (with the filter) and pour 2c hot water over it. The coffee will drain into the cup. Add the condensed milk and the evaporated milk into the coffee (add more if necessary).
Then transfer the coffee mixture into a cup with ice for a refreshing drink!
