HO CHI MINH CITY | Chè Vỉa Hè Cô Điệp (“Co Diep Sidewalk Tea”) is a sidewalk dessert shop in District 3 that’s popular with locals looking for a quick dessert to-go, or enjoy while sitting on one of the plastic chairs on the sidewalk.
The stall is run on most days by the son of the original owner, who expertly operates several pots and pans filled with an assortment of desserts with tea and coconut milk bases. It’s ingredients like taro, red beans, and banana in tasty, but not overly-sweet liquid
One of the signature dishes is the soft steamed banana, sourced fresh from the market each morning, in coconut milk, with tapioca pearls and crushed peanuts. Contrasting textures and beautifully balanced flavours make it easy to see why it’s a crowd favourite.
The stall is only open for a few hours each evening, and is constantly busy. Service is fast and friendly, and you’re never waiting for more than a few minutes for your dessert.
