“No matter how much colourful words we put into it and describe its distinct taste, you would still need to try it for yourself."
An egg coffee is a Vietnamese drink which is traditionally prepared with egg yolks, sugar, condensed milk and Robusta coffee. The drink is made by beating egg yolks with sugar and coffee, then extracting the coffee into the half of the cup, followed by a similar amount of egg cream, which is prepared by heating and beating the yolks. The drink is served in cafes throughout Hanoi, and has been a staple since the 1950s, with one barista describing it as appearing on "every cafe menu".
The Giang Café in particular is known for serving the drink, which it makes with chicken egg yolk, coffee powder, condensed milk (cheese optionally). The cup is served inside a bowl of hot water to retain its temperature. The son of the café's founder claims that his father developed the recipe for the drink when milk was scarce in Vietnam, replacing the dairy product with egg yolk.
