VIETNAMESE COFFEE

Sweet and creamy, with a huge kick of intense coffee flavor, Vietnamese coffee is the caffeine hit I want all day, every day.

Nothing is more refreshing or more energy life giving than an icy cold Vietnamese coffee. Sweet and creamy, with a huge kick of intense coffee flavor. This is the caffeine hit I want all day, every day.

After Brazil, Vietnam is the largest producer of coffee in the world and it’s no surprise that Vietnamese coffee culture is fierce. Cafes line the streets and morning, noon, and night, you’ll see people drinking coffee. It’s just a way of life. After pho and banh mi, I think Vietnamese coffee might be the most well known Vietnamese culinary export.

* WHAT IS VIETNAMESE COFFEE?

Dark, intense, rich, and deep, Vietnamese coffee is coffee made from Vietnamese grown coffee beans, strong and flavorful, often cut with sweetened condensed milk and drunk hot or cold.

Nowadays, lots of people think Vietnamese coffee is just regular old coffee with sweetened condensed milk in it. If we’re going to be purists: true Vietnamese coffee is made from robusta coffee beans (or a mix of robusta and arabica) grown in Vietnam.

Robusta beans are bitter, less acidic, and have twice as much caffeine as the more commonly used Arabica beans. Robusta beans produce a very dark, very strong coffee that’s beautifully balanced out by sweetened condensed milk.

For the sake of simplicity in this post, we’ll define Vietnamese coffee as coffee made from beans grown in Vietnam and or coffee served with sweetened condensed milk. We’re using Vietnamese grown beans and if you want a truly authentic cup, you should use them too

* WHAT DOES VIETNAMESE COFFEE TASTE LIKE?

In a word: delicious! I am addicted to that sweet milky coffee-forward flavor. It tastes like how you imagine coffee to taste. Deliciously dark and deep with a hint of roasty caramel, sweet milkiness, nutty buttery-ness, with just a touch of chocolate notes.

* EGG COFFEE

Egg coffee or cà phê trứng is a specialty of Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam. It’s made with whisked egg yolks, condensed milk, and strong coffee. Egg coffee is a beautifully layered drink with contrasting flavors: bitterness from the coffee, sweetness from the condensed milk, and richness from the whipped egg yolks. It’s almost dessert-like and has been compared to a liquid tiramisu.

VIETNAM'S MAGICAL MID-AUTUMN FESTIVAL AND ITS SPECIAL CULINARY TRADITION.

This time in Hanoi is Autumn. This season is one of the most favorite seasons of all children in Vietnam in general and in Hanoi in particular. It is because of Mid-autumn Festival (Tet Trung Thu). Let's find out more about the festival and its culinary tradition with T-ZO today.

Every Vietnamese child dreams about an amazing Tết Trung Thu with his or her own brightly lit lantern, a belly full of mooncakes and toys given by their parents. Tết Trung Thu or Mid-autumn Festival, is also known in Vietnam as the “Children’s Festival”.

* ORIGINS OF TET TRUNG THU (Mid-Autumn Festival)
While the Mid-autumn Festival originated in China and is celebrated in many Asian countries, yet the Vietnamese version has its own traditions and legends. Our best-known tale is about a man named Cuội who hung on to a magical banyan tree as it floated up to the moon. We say that if you look closely at the full moon, you can see the shadow of a man sitting under a tree. Children parade lanterns in the streets the night of Mid-autumn Festival to help light the way to earth for Cuội from the moon.

The celebration of the harvest is an important part of Tết Trung Thu, as many Vietnamese live in rural areas and work as farmers. Tết Trung Thu marks a joyous occasion when the work is finished and there’s time to spend with loved ones.

* PREPARATIONS BEGIN
In the weeks before Tết Trung Thu, you will see and hear groups of lion dancers practicing on the streets. Mooncake stalls appear on every other corner, pop-ups with elaborately decorated boxes filled with a variety of mystery cakes and fillings. City districts team up with preparations of toys, lanterns and colourful masks in anticipation. The most popular Trung Thu lantern is a star made with red cellophane. You’ll see these lanterns for sale on streets all over Vietnam in the days leading up to the festival.

* MOONCAKE MADNESS
All across Vietnam, families welcome Tết Trung Thu by placing a five-fruit tray and cakes on our ancestral altar. We offer the food to our ancestors and worship, before feasting on mooncakes -- usually outside under the light of the moon. Round or square, these cakes are moulded with elaborate details of flowers, carp and geometric patterns.

The two most common types are bánh dẻo (soft, sticky cakes with a mochi-texture) and bánh nướng (baked cakes with a thick wheat crust). Mooncakes in Vietnam come in a seemingly infinite variety of flavours, both sweet and savoury. Feel free to buy a box of mooncakes to enjoy yourself, or to share with your Vietnamese friends and hosts.

* MOONLIT CELEBRATIONS
On the night of the full moon, children bearing brightly coloured lanterns form raucous processions and tour their neighbourhoods singing songs. You will see a male dancer wearing a round happy-faced mask that symbolises the moon. He urges the lion dancers on and delights the crowd with his comical moves. This is the Earth God, Ông Địa, who represents the fullness of the earth and reminds onlookers to give thanks for its bounty. Ông Địa always brings joy and puts a smile on every Vietnamese child's face.

* LION DANCING
Lion dancing or múa lân is an essential element of the Mid-autumn festivities. Groups of children gather, each carrying a red lantern. Everyone sings along to the cheerful Mid-autumn Festival songs memorized since childhood. Excitement peaks when drumbeats ring out from down the dark street. The smaller kids shrink back and the older ones run forward as a mythical lion bursts into their courtyard, its giant head and sinuous body borne by a team of acrobatic dancers.

With its gaping mouth and protruding eyes, the lion is both comical and formidable. The dancers lunge closer to the crowd, making the kids scream and laugh at their antics. Under the light of the full moon, the lion’s red sequined body sparkles as it dances. For Vietnamese children, not much else beats this spectacular performance on the night of Trung Thu.

Today T-ZO is not going to talk about Hanoi pho, rice dishes or rolls but together discover one of the typical features of Hanoi culinary culture, one signature & popular drink of the capital city of Vietnam - Bia Hoi (Fresh beer/ Draft Beer) 😄

* WHAT IS BIA HOI?

Bia hoi, or fresh beer, is a popular draft larger beer in Vietnam. It’s often served on recycled glasses, and available primarily on the street across the country – especially in the capital Hanoi. The beer is authentically packaged and delivered daily in steel kegs on motorbike.

Since the alcohol content of this foamy beer is just 3%, bia hoi is exceptionally cheap – a glass of bia hoi costs less than 50 US cents (11,500 VND), with some vendors offering it for as cheap as 20 cents (5,000 VND). Thus, bia hoi is known as the cheapest beer in the world.

Thanks to the quick turnover, the restaurants and street vendors that serve bia hoi often get a fresh batch delivered promtly from the breweries. Therefore, there is few preservatives, dregs are chucked down the gutter at close of the business each day.

* HISTORY OF BIA HOI
The history of bia hoi is much like that of the Vietnamese coffee, beef noodle soup, and banh mi pate, it began with the French colonialists – who first brought beer into Vietnam in the late 19thcentury.

Before beer, traditionally, Vietnamese drank home-brewed rice wine – ruou gao. As the first beer brewery in Hanoi was opened by the French in 1890, the beer drinking culture of Vietnam caught on quickly.

After defeating the French in 1954, Vietnam took over the beer production and tried to bring beer to the masses. To deal with the shortage of materials to make glass bottles, reusable metal kegs were utilized. As it turned out, people loved the affordable and fresh taste of bia hoi.

Today, Vietnam is one of Asia’s biggest beer-drinking countries, consuming 4,6 billion liters a year in 2019, taking per capita beer consumption to 46 liters, according to Ministry of Industry and Trade.

* HOW IS BIA HOI MADE IN HANOI?

Unless you’ve homebrewed or have read a lot about the technical side of brewing, we’d suspect you might have question about how bia hoi is made. Fear not! Let’s us get you familiar with the process of making bia hoi in Hanoi.

From the imported barley, the state-run Hanoi Beverage Company (Habeco) starts the regular malting process involving multiple steps; steeping, germinating, and kilning. The malting process is mainly about enzymes, which initiate the process of converting starch to sugar.

The malt solution will then boiled while hops (also imported) are added to create aroma and bitterness for the beer. The beer wort will then be cooled to a temperature where fermentation can begin, provided with additional enzymes necessary for the growth of yeast.

It’s this wort that they’ll also add yeast to, which will be very happy about all that grain-based sugar and nutrients it has to eat. Once that yeast finishes its work during the cooling and fermentation, they’re left with Hanoi beer. After filtering, the beer is packaged in kegs for delivering.

* IS IT SAFE TO DRINK BIA HOI?

Since it’s cheap and found mostly on the street, there has been many discussions when it comes to the safety of bia hoi. We haven’t experienced any problem while drinking it, except a hangover sometimes. It’s normal as we Vietnamese are insisting on finishing a beer in one sip. It just adds up after many bottom ups!

We haven’t heard any negative experience about bia hoi from clients neither, though there were few headaches from those who had too many bottom ups though. Hence, it’s more than enough for us to say it’s safe to drink bia hoi. However, it’s worth bearing in mind that this a street style beer.

* As originated from Hanoi, Vietnam, T-Zo really hopes that one day we could be able to serve bia hoi here in the U.S.
