Oh we were afraid of egg coffee....and tried here ..... Oh my god so good. The place is typical Vietnamese in the back of a house. A little creepy for sure :D

Cafe Giang - crowded coffee place serving great egg coffee (caphe trung). They serve this on a hot water bath to maintain the coffee temperature. Delicious coffee that is thick and sweet.

This place is recommended to us by a local and its entrance is quite hidden. Need to walk through a narrow alley. There are low wooden tables and stools both on the ground floor and first floor. There are many choices of drinks available here....More

I'm not sure if they add condensed milk to the egg coffee, what I know is they add the blended egg on top of the coffee. But maybe you can request them your specifications.

Giang Cafe was founded by My Father ,Mr. Nguyen Giang in 1946, when he was working as a bartender for the famous five-star Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi hotel. Although the cafe has been relocated twice, its egg coffee recipe is almost the same as in its early days, with its chief ingredients being chicken egg yolk, Vietnamese coffee powder, sweetened condensed milk, butter and cheese.
