Vietnamese Egg Coffee Recipe
Going to Hanoi? Egg Coffee is a must! Go to Cafe Giang, 39 Nguyen Huu Huan street, in the Old Quarter. It is incredible. The Cafe owner's father invented the drink in 1946 he worked at Hanoi’s Sofitel Legend Metropole hotel.
READ my blog about EGG COFFEE, for more details.
Try it. You will love it!
3 teaspoons of Vietnamese coffee powder (Vietnamese coffee is available on Amazon here)
2 teaspoons of sweetened condensed milk
Brew a small cup of Vietnamese coffee. (Vietnamese coffee filters available on Amazon here. Also, for visual step-by-step of the brew process, there is a good set of photos explaining how to here.)
Crack an egg and discard the whites.
Put the yolk and the sweetened condensed milk in a small, deep bowl and whisk vigorously until you end up with a frothy, fluffy mixture like the one above. Add a tablespoon of the brewed coffee and whisk it in.
In a clear coffee cup (we’re going for aesthetics here), pour in your brewed coffee, then add the fluffy egg mixture on top.
Viola! Egg coffee.
Please write to me and tell me how it turns out!
