But did you know that there is country in the world that serves egg in their coffee? Customers can have the egg coffee one of two ways: hot or cold.
Amazing, right?
Do you know where we need to travel in order enjoy this coffee?
It is indeed Vietnam. A bit more about it:
Nguyen Van Dao who was interviewed, said that back in 1946, his father Nguyen Van Giang, a barman at the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hotel in Hanoi, ran out of milk to serve with the coffee. In a pinch, he whipped up a mixture of egg yolks and condensed milk, and the rest was history.
As popularity for the beverage grew, so did the business to the Giang Coffee shop in the old quarter of Hanoi today.
The country isn’t the only one to have used eggs in coffee. Several Scandinavian countries also crack egg yolks into coffee grounds, which supposedly making the coffee less bitter. The two versions could not be more different, save for the use of a shared ingredient, the egg. The Vietnamese version tastes like a foamy flan (a Spanish dessert) while the Scandinavian version is said to enhance the coffee, rather than change the taste completely.
The coffee, known locally as Ca Phe Trung, has been so successful that most cafes in Hanoi serve up a version of their own, where tourists and locals alike lined the walls waiting for the beverage.
