Vietnamese Egg Coffee at Coffee & Chill Station, Hoan Kiem, Hanoi

I am never a coffee lover. And you might find it odd since most of the person you know loves coffee. Sadly, I experience breathing difficulties and palpitations every time I try a cup.

But while in Vietnam, it is hard to say no to the controversial egg-infused coffee served into your table. As second to the largest exporter of coffee around the globe, Vietnam stick serving their locals and visitors this quirky drink.

Although we had three other different drinks, this Cà Phê Trứng stood out the most. And we are just in the perfect time of winter in Hanoi to have this warm decadent cup.

We were supposed to go to a different coffee shop but they ran out of stock. Without hesitating, they eagerly suggested another cafe. There comes Coffee & Chill Station along the side of Hoan Kiem Lake.

It was after we did our souvenir shopping that we stayed for a quick chill and chitchat. The shop was cozy enough to refresh us again after a haggle-filled morning. The staffs were friendly and can converse in English. Another factor to recommend the shop.

Egg coffee was discovered when Mr. Nguyen Giang, a local working at Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi Hotel made egg and condensed milk as a substitute for cream.

How does it taste like? A perfect balance of strong coffee and a frothy and silky egg yolk in one. It undeniable resembles a liquid tiramisu.

I can say that this drink is so rich that you don't want to miss when you get a trip to Hanoi.

Will you have courage to try this phenomenal drink?
