    This looks amazing. Great touch with the milk crumbs. In a huge fan of momofuku anything. What a delicious ice cream. I’ve been avoiding making it becausr no churn doesn’t taste the same, but this has convinced me that is worth a go. I know what you mean when you miss the blog even though the same amount of time has passed. It’s not in your head the same way when your focus has to shift toward less creative work. Great food and photos as always. I’d love some of this ice cream right now! Xo

    This is going on my list to make! The milk crumb is intriguing – it sets it apart from all the other Vietnamese coffee ice cream recipes I’ve seen. I also like the addition of black tea. Great recipe, gorgeous photography!

    Oh gosh, I love yuanyang-anything. It is a common drink in Singapore as well (where I come from) and such a refreshing drink on a hot humid day. Thanks for this recipe! I can’t wait to try it. 🙂

    I love how you combine flavors to create pure amazingness.. this ice cream is major example of that.. I mean condensed milk crumbles.. Hello!

    This looks incredible! Is it weird that I want to make the milk crumb and eat it alone? I’m sure it’s fab with this gorgeous ice cream too. I’ve never tried Jeni’s Splendid, but I’ve only ever heard rave reviews. Looks like I have some delicious investigating to do!

    I love this! I was justreadying about yuanyang the other day – I’m actually researching it for a lil’ side project. So this is totally serendipitous. And it sounds delicious. As a very indecisive person I love one less decision to make come ice cream time.

    This may be the most creamy, dreamy ice cream I’ve ever seen. Swirls of frozen sweetened condensed milk throughout?! You kill me. So lovely, Cynthia! Good luck at work with the everyone out of town – hopefully it calms down soon! Hugs! <3

    I remember being so bemused by the coffee-tea concept when one of my colleagues first handed me coffee-tea bag. But it totally makes sense, I mean, I love coffee and I love tea.. sooooo…

    PS I have to say your recipe notebook looks so much neater than mine. For some reason I forget how to write properly when I’m writing things in it, I think because I get too excited and I’m like, future me will just have to figure out what I meant by all of these incomprehensible scribbles. 😛

    YAYY for the August calm, which hopefully started early, like, idk, this afternoon cause HOLY crappola, tomorrow’s August 1st. How is that even possible? Anyway, this ice cream is dreamy and you are the first person to turn me onto yuanyang coffee so it seems only fitting that you’d show me the beauty that is yuanyang coffee ice cream with THOSE milk crumbles. Killing it. Seriously, killing it.

    Ice cream does magically make most things better! I loved getting this drink in HK diners when I was younger. It’s just so good. And I would enjoy it with a piece of condensed milk toast… gahhhh, so good, but so painful for my tummy nowadays. I love the flavours going on here and the condensed milk crumble is genius! I am always amazed with the creations from/inspired by Christina Tosi at Momofuku. So much brainy creativity!
