I missed my chance to order an egg coffee. We ran into this drink on our recent Vietnam trip while up in Hanoi. Our group went to a restaurant that decided to do a demonstration of how egg coffee is made. It’s a big operation, taking somewhere around fifteen minutes if I remember right. A heck of a lot of work, and it was incredibly rich and delicious.
But I only got a quick taste. Given the amount of time required to make one, they only made one sample, and it was too late to order a full cup. Then we left Hanoi and I didn’t find it again.
From what I read, this is primarily served in Hanoi cafes. It is beginning to be served in Ho Chi Minh City, but I didn’t find it there. Someone in our group found it somewhere else, perhaps Ho Chi Minh City, but they said it wasn’t as good there. That first restaurant is the only place I saw it in all of our Vietnam trip.
I totally missed my chance to order a cup.
