This Vietnamese Egg Coffee is basically made by whipping raw egg yolks with sweetened condensed milk. This delicious creamy concoction is then placed on top of the more traditional strong Vietnam drip coffee. The topping turns this coffee into more like a dessert.
In major cities of Vietnam, you will notice a lot of street vendors and ‘local café’, gathering on blue and red plastic chairs some now turn to modern cafe with little wooden furniture, locals chill and blend right in with their egg-coffee mix. To the Vietnamese, having a coffee is also a “sit down” experience they share with family, friends or coworkers. The concept of taking it “to go” is not very common.
This is why we always mentioned that this is not just a drink; it is a symbol, a culture of the country. It is a must try before you wrap up your trip in Vietnam.
