A typical drink in Hanoi – “Cà phê Trứng”
As a coffee lover, I have tried to many different kind of coffee all over the world however the best one in my mind and I did not choice any second throughts in my favorist drink list, it is Egg Coffee.
An Egg Coffee ( cà phê trứng) is a Vietnamsese drink which is traditionally prepared with egg yolks, surgar, condensed milk and Robusta coffee. The dink is made by beating egg yolks with sugar and coffee, then extracting the coffee into the half of the cup, followed by a similar amount of egg cream, which is prepared by heating and beating the yolks. The cup is served inside a bowl of hot water to retain its temprature. You can find a noumerouse of coffee when visit Hanoi especially in Oldquater but the most famouse coffee I prefer and would like to recommend is Ca Phe Giang.
It is not a huge café, mordern and fancy like the ones that are popping out the street of Hanoi. You can fell the atmosphere of home and cozy when you are here. It is quite difficulty locating it since the place is hidden small lane on Nguyen Huu Huan Street in the city Old quarter. It is a narrow path getting inside the café. The lights were a bit dim, it was really a family owned café and not really the classy type.
You should really try this Egg coffee at least once in your life. It was a really good experience. Depend on your wish, you can chose either hot coffee or coffee with ice. Ice coffee is very frothy and smooth while hot egg coffeee is tick, creamy and sweet. Why don’t you try at both ?
Although there is a list of another drinks, egg coffee can be calles as the best one and become the best choice for Hanoi street food list. In fact, I can drink few more cups of egg coffee but I don’t want to keep myself a wake during that night!You should really try this egg coffe at least once in there life, it was a really good expereince.

PPKM (Pemberlakuan Pembatasan Kegiatan Masyarakat) is restrictions towards community activities. PPKM is implemented since July 3, 2021, as a local lockdown in various regions in Indonesia in an effort to suppress the spread of the Coronavirus. At the moment, the government has decided to extend the PPKM policy until August 2, 2021.
Critical and essential sectors continue to operate following government policies. Meanwhile, the tourism and other non-essential sectors are still temporarily closed until further notice.
Some exceptions during the implementation of PPKM policy, are:
- Traditional markets are allowed to operate until 3 p.m.;
- Restaurants and other meal shops are allowed to offer dine-in services with limited time visit to 20 minutes; maximum close at 8.00 p.m.;
- Barbershops, vehicle maintenance and repair services, small-scale businesses, and groceries are allowed to open until 9 p.m.
All activities must be within 50% of the area’s capacity and under strict health protocols.
The announcement was announced by the President of the Republic of Indonesia, Joko Widodo, on July 25, 2021.
The possibility of an extension can occur when the decrease in cases has not been significant.
Hopefully, the conditions will be conducive soon, then we can all travel again.
Stay safe, happy, and healthy!
