Recipe and where to find the best Egg Coffee in Hanoi
For the best Egg Coffee, try it in the old quarter at Giang Cafe, (39 Nguyen Huu Huan, Hanoi), where they have been making this special coffee since 1946, and have a few extra secret ingredients.
This might sound like an odd combination, but it does taste divine. Something I have heard as described between a warm tiramisu and a coffee cadburys creme egg. I prefer it hot, but is often served over ice too.
2-3tsp Vietnamese coffee *(alternative ingredient – Ground expresso will work, but add a little sugar)
2tsp Sweet condensed milk
1 Egg yolk
Brew a small cup of coffee.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolk, condensed milk and just one teaspoon of the brewed coffee until you get a thick fluffy mixture.
Pour your coffee in a cup and top with the mixture.
To serve – sit the cup in a bowl of hot water to keep it warm and serve with a spoon to stir as you sip. If you prefer over ice, the just do it.
