Giang café (39 Nguyen Huu Huan street)
Founded by Mr. Giang himself, this traditional egg coffee will challenge your taste buds. The egg cream layer is thicker than you will find elsewhere and the drink has a strong, sweet flavor. It’s best to begin by stirring to combine all the layers, so the sweet cream and milk soften the bitterness of the coffee. Each cup is placed into a bowl of warm water to maintain the heat. Giang café is open from 7 a.m to 10 p.m, and an egg coffee goes for VND20,000 a cup.
There’s also a branch at 109 Yen Phu street.
Pho Co café (11 Hang Gai street, Hanoi)
Egg coffee is normally taken hot, but an iced egg coffee from Pho Co can change one’s mind. The egg cream tastes sweet and slightly oily, and is calculated to balance with the coffee. Making egg coffee is hard enough, making iced egg coffee is a serious challenge. Another reason people choose Pho Co is the perfect view from the fourth floor facing Hoan Kiem Lake.
Egg coffee prices range from VND40,000 to VND45,000 . The café is open from 7 a.m to 10 p.m.
