The secret to attracting customers is that sugarcane is pressed with oranges instead of kumquat (kumquat) like in other places. So when drinking, sugarcane juice will have a slight acidity combined with a rather strange sweet taste. In addition, the sugarcane here is imported new every day, so the quality is always guaranteed. This is a big plus that makes this small restaurant always crowded with customers. At the shop, there are 2 types of sugarcane juice for 15k and sugarcane juice in a big bag for 20k, you can choose according to your preferences.

The glass of coconut water here is quite large, and has a moderate sweetness, mixed with the cool ice, it is too reasonable to choose for refreshment. In addition, each glass is served with lumpy coconut rice and a delicious chewy rim. If you choose fragrant coconut water, there will be more sweet and sour sugar slugs, drinking with coconut water also creates a delicious taste.

I wish I could wipe Ba Binh with a “terrible” topping

Address: 131 Nguyen Thien Thuat, Ward 2, District 3

Open: 6:30am – 9pm

Anyone who is a fan of homemade ginseng dishes such as cane reeds, chrysanthemums, and seaweed can’t miss the Ba Binh ginseng shop. Although mainly for take-out, there are only a few low plastic chairs for those who want to sit back, customers still wait to buy a lot. In addition to buying directly, the number of customers ordering through the app is also extremely large. Up to now, the shop has been selling for nearly 40 years.

The reason why Ba Binh ginseng juice is so attractive is that it has an esoteric recipe for ginseng, so it is very fragrant, rich in flavor and not too sweet. There are also many types of toppings that have a high “cooling” effect such as tapioca roots, lotus seeds, longan, red apples, etc. A huge plus point is that ginseng juice here has a super cheap price, only from 15k – 20k So it’s easy to understand why the restaurant is so popular with customers.
