Vietnamese egg coffee is a curious-sounding drink made by whipping egg yolks, sugar and condensed milk and is served on top of the black coffee. It sounds weird but it’s seriously delicious.
Vietnamese iced coffee, the sweetened version loaded with lots of condensed milk, has been the favourite snack of many in the western world. But truly, that weak and sweet coffee is nowhere close to the local version in Hanoi which is so strong, fragrant and almost liquor like. One sip, and the addiction starts.
