Recommendation by Lemi
Mr. Nguyen Giang, founder of this eponymous café, wanted to bring cappuccinos to locals but encountered one problem: fresh milk was scarce in the late 1940s. In a jiffy, he whipped egg yolks as a substitute and the rest is history! Egg coffee (cà phê trứng) has become a popular drink around town but there’s nothing quite like the original; Mr. Giang really got a lock on the perfect egg to coffee ratio. Savor the liquid tiramisu-like concoction as the creamy froth wonderfully offsets the bite of Robusta. Look out for the narrow alley under a small sign on Nguyễn Hữu Huân Street to come across the shop entrance.
