A Visit to Voi Cà Phê
An Iced Phin Coffee with Sweetened Condensed Milk from Voi Cà Phê in Georgetown.
Voi Cà Phê is a new Vietnamese coffee shop in Seattle's Georgetown neighborhood. Their menu is short but sweet, and it wasn't hard to decide what to order. I chose an original Vietnamese coffee, an iced Phin Coffee with Sweetened Condensed Milk. Voi in Vietnamese means elephant, which they have as part of their logo. Elephants play a legendary role in Vietnam's culture.
This coffee shop is small, only fitting one customer at a time. We waited outside for our turn. They have some chairs outside, so you can chill in the sun with your coffee. Vietnamese coffee is strong, so be prepared for a nice caffeine buzz. I really liked the flavor of my coffee with the sweetened condensed milk. It made for a creamy and sweet, but very strong coffee drink!
Phin refers to the type of coffee filter that's used to make traditional Vietnamese Coffee. I didn't know what it meant, so I looked it up! I noticed a lot of new Vietnamese Coffee shops opening in Seattle recently, so I was excited to see one near my neighborhood. They also serve Bahn Mi Sandwiches, if you want some fuel with your caffeine.
