Street Food: Che Thai


You are a fan of Che Thai Lan? Check out this so-called only eatery in the capital selling authentic Thai-style sweet soup. The article was published on Word Vietnam magazine – Issue June 2014. Photos by Teresa Welleans.

As the weather defines our appetite, summer could be called the season of drinking, rather than eating. This explains why during the summer months, Hanoi is so rich in different types of drinks. From nuoc mia or sugar cane juice to tra da, tra chanh or iced tea, lemon tea and che or sweet soup, these drinks can be seen on almost every street in the capital.

Of the summer drinks, my favourite is che. Personally, I don’t think the word ‘soup’ expresses the correct meaning of this concoction. Che is certainly not an appetizer and it’s neither savoury nor condensed — it’s an any-time-of-the-day drink. You can give yourself a treat in the morning, also a dessert after lunch, or afternoon tea, even for supper in the late evening while wandering around the Old Quarter.

Traditional sweet soups include black bean, green peas or lotus seeds with the scented smell of jasmine. But in recent years, imported versions are becoming popular. Besides Singaporean bobo-chacha, and various versions from Malaysia or Hong Kong, Thailand sweet soup, known as che Thai, has garnered a following. Available at eateries on Doi Can, Giang Vo, Hang Than and in Nam Dong Market, it is however only at the eatery on Kim Ma where diners can enjoy an authentic Thailand-like experience.
