Drinking a cup of delicious egg coffee in a taciturn space of Old Quarter is a memorable experience when visiting Hanoi.
Here are: Three egg coffee spots in the old quarter that travellers should know.
Egg coffee is the combination of black coffee, yolk and glair. It has the best taste right after stirring condensed milk.
This café is the first place selling egg coffee from the 1940s. Because of lacking milk, people used egg instead for many cases at that time. Mr. Giang created egg coffee with special taste. This kind of drink is inspired by cappuccino.
Addresses: 39 Nguyen Huu Huan Street and 106 Yen Phu Street.
Although it has a smaller space than Giang café, it owns a balcony with a good Hoan Kiem lake view and this spot has become the most favorite spot of many people. Dinh café is located on the second floor of the house lying on 13 Dinh Tien Hoang Street. To reach the second floor, you have to pass old steps of the house’s stair with dimmed light, but customers are very interested in.
Coffee in here costs only 15,000 VND.
Located in a deep small lane on 11 Hang Gai Street, this café has a mini bar to order at the first floor and the other three are for seats with panoramic lake view. This café attracts people from the deep lane, if you are not instructed, you may not realize it.
The menu is rather simple, in summer, you can order iced egg coffee, the price is much more expensive, 45,000 VND/cup but it is fuller. This café is not as delicious as those two café but it is still a good choice with beautiful view.
