Food Trip Friday 040: Cafe dahko teuk’o (iced coffee with milk)

Yes, say it one more time… café dahko teuk’o… a bit of a tongue-twister, eh? But never you mind, just say iced-coffee and you’ll surely be addicted to it, too!

I have to say that the best iced-coffee in Phnom Penh is found at Psar Tuol Tumpong (Tuol Tumpong market), popularly known as the Russian market. I love it so much that I used to have my fix more than three times a day. And who doesn’t? It is prepared similar to the Vietnamese style of coffee-making using a clay pot and out comes a wonderful blend of Khmer-Vietnamese coffee, crushed ice, and all-you-can-stomach sweetened (or condensed) milk. It is absolutely a must-have! If only not for my current diet regimen, I would be happily sipping a glass of iced-coffee every time I crave for it. 
Tired of exploring the maze-like Tuol Tumpong market? Feeling hot and thirsty? This sinfully addictive caffeine fix will not only quench your thirst but will leave you jiggly-wiggly and ready for more rounds of shop-till-you-drop adventure!

  1. Oh, just what I need right now…it's early in the morning here but it feels like we're being grilled. Phew! screw this heat wave. It really is inviting but I'm also trying to lessen my caffeine intake.

  2. I'm never a fan of coffee but I would have iced coffee or cappucino at times 🙂 The Indian version of Chai latte is my fave too! waaah more than 3 glasses a day? hinay hinay sis…
