Chè Vỉa Hè Cô Điệp, District 3

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.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
