Saigon coffee shops

The city is famous with its various, mixed cultures and coffee. Any kind of coffee can be found here, the most famous one is local legendary ‘cà-phê sữa đá’ – iced coffee with condensed milk, a must-try coffee when you are here. You can also find any kind of foods in Saigon, from Chinese dim-sum, Japanese sushi, Taiwanese dumpling, to French fine dining, Mexican tacos, Thai street food or even Mongolian hotpot.

I’d love to visit new coffee shops or restaurants in town. Saigon is never running out of new places to go. If there have any places that make me feel comfortable or impressive enough, I will choose a quite corner, to chill and to draw it on my notebooks.

Here are some of it, the pieces that I feel comfortable to share :).

Idle sketching time

Before Covid, I did travelling a lots, mostly business trips to Ha Noi, Bangkok or sometimes Singapore. Whenever I waiting for boarding, I sit down at an airport fast food restaurant, coffee shop or on bench and sketch things. There are a lots more in my old sketchbooks.
