Hanoi Egg Coffee - A Must-Try Specialty In The Capital City

It is no surprise that every street and alley in Hanoi is brimming with coffee shops. Authentic coffee culture blends in every part of the city from a sidewalk cafe where people sit on low plastic stools sipping a cup of coffee to a high-end cafe with luxurious decoration.

It is easy to ask for a cup of coffee originated from the capital of coffee in Vietnam: Buon Me Thuot City, Dak Lak Province  in every cafe shop in Hanoi. However, more than just a caffein fix, you can find a specialty called egg coffee - "ca phe trung" only in Hanoi. Let's find out reasons contributing to the one-of-a-kind reputation of egg coffee. 

 Cafe Giang - A famous shop in Hanoi

Egg coffee is an extraordinary combination between dense Vietnamese coffee and creamy-soft, meringue-like egg white foam atop. What brings a "wow" factor to this specialty is its tempting sweet and bitter flavors at the same tim. Egg coffee can be either served in hot or cold version. Especially, the cold variation is added with cubes of ice and it tastes like a coffee-flavored ice cream.

You may wonder where to try this wonderful kind of drink, yet options are numerous. Some of the most highly recommended brands are:

Cafe Giang: 109 Yen Phu Street & 39 Nguyen Huu Huan Street, Hanoi

Cafe Lam: 91 Nguyen Huu Huan Street, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi

All Day Coffee: 37 Quang Trung Street, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi

Blackbird Cafe: 5 Chan Cam Street, Hoan Kiem District
