Coconut Coffees and Ginger Beer at Hanoi House What to Drink

If you haven’t heard, The Hanoi House recently opened on St. Mark’s St in the East Village. A classic Vietnamese restaurant by Sarah Leveen and Ben Powell, Hanoi House is a welcome addition to the ‘hood.

And since we are obsessed with coffee as much as cocktails we had to check out all of the coffee offerings. Be warned: the Vietnamese coffee is strong and deceiving with the coconut gelato or condensed milk. Don’t look to add this to your a.m. routine since they open every day starting at 5:30 pm.

They also have a selection of local NY beers beyond the Vietnamese staples including the Gravies Point Nightcap Black IPA from Glen Cove, NY. If you want to drink like you are in Vietnam then order the Export “33” with an Amer Gingebre shot.

Coconut Coffee Drinks

Vietnamese Iced Coffee

This is a traditional Vietnamese Iced that features coffee and condensed milk over ice.

Vietnamese Iced Coffee – cà phê sữa đá

Coffee Over Ice with Coconut Gelato

This is a variation on the classic Vietnamese coffee with coconut gelato being subbed for the condensed milk. This is more of a dessert than a morning drink. If you are sensitive to caffeine be careful. This is similar to an affogato, which is an Italian coffee-based dessert.

Vietnamese Hot Coffee – cà phê sữa nóng

Vietnamese Drip Coffee with Coconut Milk

This is a hot coffee dripped over condensed milk. The coffee is brewed in a phin, or French drip filter that sits on top of the cup.

Boozy Drinks at Hanoi House

Coconut Gelato with Raspberry Liqueur

Coconut Gelato with Raspberry Liqueur

This is a variation on the affogato, starting with a coconut gelato base but adding a raspberry liqueur instead of coffee. This is low ABV and is much more a dessert than a cocktail, think Tipsy Scoop or boozy ice cream.

Export “33” with Amer Gingebre Shot

Export 33 Vietnamese Lager and Amer Gingebre

This is like a beer and a shot, with the traditional Export “33” beer with an ounce of Amer Gingebre added.
