There's this Vietnamese place that Phillip likes to go to for lunch when he's working days. It's in a former '50s themed restaurant and the Vietnamese folks never bothered changing the decor. It's kind of bizarre to be eating my egg roll salad with rice vermicelli and fish sauce while listening to the Big Bopper, but it works. Their Vietnamese iced coffee is so good that I've been making my own at home with a recipe from allrecipes.com.
Vietnamese Iced Coffee (original recipe found here)
4 cups water
1/2 cup ground coffee beans
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
Just go ahead and add the sweetened condensed milk to the coffee pot and then brew your coffee right into it. Give it a stir and let cool for a bit then pour over ice (it's okay if it's a little warm because the ice is meant to dilute it).
