Several weeks ago in this section, in a story on iced coffee, the cold brew at New Dong Khanh was featured with half a dozen other chilled glasses of joe. The Vietnamese coffee at New Dong Khanh is brewed individually and mixed with plenty of sweetened condensed milk and ice cubes. Intriguing. But what was even more so is a Vietnamese restaurant we didn’t know about.
The “new” in New Dong Khanh refers to the place renovated four years ago and open for almost three decades. There’s a bubble tea bar in the front, which also serves frozen yogurt (more on that later). It’s co-owned by Tammy Luu and her husband, Tung Nguyen, and their three children work with them, Cassidy, 36, Leon, 34, and Joseph, 25.
