IceIce

Ice.

In Saigon, we drink iced beverages all day, so it does not surprise that we also drink our coffee, even the speciality coffee on the rocks.

Now one thing that happens if you use regular ice cubes from the freezer is - they melt fast and water down your coffee.

So it is advised to always use clear, compacted ice when you can get your hands on it. It cools fast and melts slow.

I actually played with the thought of using fake ice cubes that do not melt and therefore do not dilute the drink, but the Saigonese have the habit to chew their ice cubes and unless you get commission from a local dentist it would be rather counterproductive then.
