I want the drip filter, the two cups, pour over ice and stir it together myself.
The last one I had at com tam thuan kieu (next to Hawaii supermarket) was premade and bitter (but man, their tofu skin and steamed egg is spectacular)
I asked this question a while ago
My conclusion after all this time = make it yourself cuz nobody will make it the way you want. it's either too bitter or too sweet, because 50% want it sweet, 50% want it bitter.
For instance, when you say "bitter" like it's a bad thing, I got excited because it's usually too damn sweet.
Ok so I asked. Most shops (for example, kim ky) will automatically give you the premade one.
Specify you want sua da "for here" or with "drip filter"
I haven't gotten it recently at sit down restaurants because its usually either too late or lunch break. So i just get it to go.
Will check around and report back, but i remember most shops automatically giving u the filter... in the past. now many default to giving u premade since it's easier and faster.
When I was a kid, while i was eating with my family, i always remembered the filter+cup of ice. For some reason, when I go out to eat now, at the same restaurants, a premade cup is given (similar to lee's), but i'm quite certain all you need to do is specify you want it with the filter.
