Cafe Giang: An Ultra Famous Cafe From Vietnam is Now in Yokohama!
Egg Coffee is a kind of coffee with super fluffy cream served on top of coffee. Cafe Giang is said to be so popular in Vietnam that right about everyone knows it and it finally made its way to Yokohama. I went to Yokohama's Chinatown to see what all the fuss was about!
Do you know Vietnam's super popular "Egg Coffee"?
It's also nicknamed "coffee you can eat"! This new kind of coffee has finally made its way to Japan!
After mixing it with a spoon, it can be eaten with a spoon! I was really curious about this type of coffee so I had to try it out.
Vietnam's extremely popular CAFE GIANG is finally in Japan!
This well-known cafe in Vietnam has been in business for over 70 years. Finally, their second shop to open is in Japan!
From the outside, you will feel as though you are walking into someone's house!
In fact, the furniture they used is imported directly from Vietnam to further give that comfortable and inviting atmosphere.
The cafe is quite vast as there are 3 floors so it's not intimidating to simply walk in by yourself.
Super fluffy & tasty cream on top of the egg coffee
To make sure the coffee doesn't get lukewarm, the staff will pour hot water in the empty cup to warm it up first, just like they would do in Vietnam.
The smell of cinnamon and cream will entice your senses. It smells so heavenly!
On the bottom, there is the coffee, which has a slight bitterness. It is suggested to mix both of them together and to enjoy it with a spoon.
The sweetness of the fluffy cream and the bitterness of the coffee go perfectly well together!
I felt as though I was "drinking" custard cream and tiramisu.
As a sweet or as a drink, this is a very enjoyable dish.
It's perfect for the summer!
For those who don't like coffee, in Japan, there's the "Egg Matcha"!
Coffee and matcha's bitterness are a little different, this is a drink everyone can enjoy!
Since it's in Chinatown, it's a Banh Mi with Pekin duck!
Why Pekin duck? Well simply because it's in Chinatown. Interesting and delicious fusion food!
The bread is crispy on the outside, the meat is juicy and the spices accentuate the flavours.
It's addictively delicious!
