As you could see, we have new dishes pretty often, usually they are something nobody ever saw or heard before, especially in Viet cuisine. Many are curious where they come from. To answer that, we like to give an example of how making coffee was first done at Quê.
So we kinda settled into Somerset by then. Coffee powder was ready for like few months ago, but @elgyatque was not ready. No time for even googling. There were simply too many requests for Viet coffee because it needed no introduction. The meal is incomplete without that cup of Viet drink.
LG got creative so she suggested customers to go buy coffee at the many coffee houses in Somerset, and 111Somerset alone to consume at Quê. It was a clear NO from all customers.
One fine day, a gentleman insisted on having Viet coffee despite LG said no. At the end, she gave in, but with ꜰᴜʟʟ ᴅɪꜱᴄʟᴀɪᴍᴇʀ she has never made Viet coffee for the last, errr, 25 years? (lol). Before that she didn’t know either. Customer gave a nod. So the first coffee was made on the spot with @elgyatQue just dumped an unknown amount of coffee into the 𝐩𝐡𝐢𝐧, and just add in another unknown amount of milk and water 😂. To top it up, she gave some wrong instruction to the customer when passing the coffee🙊. Customer came back to drink coffee the next lunch, so we guess that was 𝐞𝐱𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐥𝐲 how Việt coffee was supposed to be made 🙌🏾😝
So yea, that’s how R&D is being done at Quê. You guys can be so assured that’s the way to do it, cos that’s how some of our most popular dishes were born here. Will share more in later posts 😬.
That was the first time though, now everything is being measured and weighted so it’s less fun. But food should be this fun *hi five*
