  Vietnamese coffee
by SirRichard

There are many vietnamese customs inherited from the french colonisation. The most welcomed by me was the "cafe au lait" and the croissants.
It's difficult to find a good expresso coffee outside Italy, France or Spain. Here in Vietnam you can have a breakfast the "french way", although the coffee is not exactly the same, but is the closest I have been to "real" coffee outside these countries.
And the croissants are great!!
