Trung Nguyen Has Opened in Singapore
No, I'm not a coffee drinker. But when I noticed that a Trung Nguyen outlet opened up at Liang Court, I had to come by (177 River Valley Road #02-34, 6837-3314), especially if they had weasel coffee available. I was surprised that they didn't present you with those little Vietnamese percolators, but I suppose that pre-mixing it behind the counter into these glasses was fitting when the seating area was decked out in comfy velvety seats.
I only found out later that their weasel coffee - called Legendee rather than ca phe chon - was processed in a lab rather than by an actual weasel. Well, I've only had it once before, so I really wouldn't know what a proper brew is supposed to taste like, but the flavor was very deep...with almost a cigar-like finish to it. At nearly S$11 (US$7.50) a glass, it's good that I can't take much caffeine or else this would become a rather expensive addiction.
