Over-Eats! - Vietnam

Overeating when I am eating overseas. Oops.

Watch how the locals simply chill with a cup of coffee, even by the road side.

☕️ Founded in 1946, Café Giảng is famous for its unique cà phê trứng (VND 25.000), or egg coffee. Think rich Vietnamese coffee topped with a creamy layer of whisked egg yolk, sweet condensed milk, butter, cheese. Very eggy and slight buttery, but surprisingly blended well into the roasted bitterness of the coffee. Touristy place and drink, but it’s legit, so you might not wanna miss it.

☕️ On a return visit, we tried other drinks in the egg series. Since mung bean is a popular ingredient in Vietnam, so why not the đậu xanh trứng, egg with mung bean (VND 30.000)? Imagine eating mung bean powder with all the sweetened condensed milk, the entire drink was just overly sweet! I preferred the Matcha trứng, egg with matcha (VND 40.000) instead, as the bitterness of the matcha powder reduces the overall sweetness.

☕️ One interesting drink that I also tried was the iced dracontomelon (VND 30.000). This green fruit, which I have never heard before this, is commonly eaten in Hanoi. Though mainly sour in taste, but it makes a refreshing drink on a hot sunny day.

Tip: If you are riding a scooter, you can park at the BIDV bank branch located at the crossroads of Hàng Tre and Ngõ Nguyễn Hữu Huân for an hour!

Some say this is the best Phở in Hanoi. I am not too sure because I haven’t eaten enough, but I know I can keep eating this again and again. 😍 Craving this light yet flavorful soup broth especially on rainy days like this. Read that they actually stir-fry the beef strips before adding into the Phở, which explains why the lean beef was so tender. The taste of ginger was a pleasant surprise, complementing the fresh herbaceous aroma from the green spring onions. Realised that the locals enjoy dipping youtiaos (fried dough fritters at VND 10.000) into the broth, so we tried that too! A different interpretation when the youtiao gets all soaked up and becomes so aromatic. Squeeze in some lime juice for an even refreshing experience!
