WORLDSDAILYFOOD PHOTO CONTEST | MONDAY DRINKS ENTRY FOR FOOD PHOTO CHALLENGE

in worldsdailyfood •  last month 

I seemed to noticed this drink being served in several coffee joints in both Hanoi & Saigon. This drink is very unfamiliar to me as from where I come from, I've never tasted or been served in this manner before.

In this particular cafe, it's called Iced Tea with Lotus Seed & Jelly. As you may see it, it's a drink as compared to back home, it's usually a dessert and served warm.

Ingredients :
Sugar Syrup
Ice
Soften lotus seed
Jelly

Lotus seed is a common ingredient in many dishes and drinks in Vietnam. It can also be eaten as a snack with beers and etc.

It is indeed a nice refreshing drink if you've been out the entire day and something to quench your thirst. Only think is that it's a bit too sweet for my palette.

So, here it is, my submission of the Monday Drink. I definitely call it a unique drink... at least for me right now.

IT'S A MONDAY DRINK TIME !!

I hope you enjoy my photo as it's taken from my Huawei phone.

100% it is indeed

I’ve never tried that drink before. In a way, it reminds me of boba tea. I’ve had that a lot with my friends. A lot of them are from Vietnam. I’m gonna have them put me on to this so I can try it myself 😃

·

Of yes.. You've got to get your friends to introduce this to you.
It's really famous here..

That looks good. Throw a shot of vodka or gin in there and it would be lovely.

·

Ha ha.. I so agree with you :)

Ooooo, that looks wicked delish! I'd love to try both versions (the iced drink and the warm dessert) some day, since I definitely have a sweet tooth. Thanks for sharing the yumminess with us, @ireenchew!
