Hanoi is known for a lot of things – its ancient temples, bustling night markets, and French colonial architecture. But if there’s one thing every tourist must experience in the city, it’s sipping a cup of egg coffee.

While traditional egg coffee is made by beating egg yolk with sugar until it turns into a frothy paste, there are now many variations of the recipe. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at how you can master the art of egg coffee-making in Hanoi.
