Cafe Giang: An Ultra Famous Cafe From Vietnam is Now in Yokohama!

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!

Feel free to follow favy!

Do you know Vietnam's super popular "Egg Coffee"?

Cafe_Giang-_egg_coffee
Have you ever heard of Vietnam's incredibly 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!

CAFE GIANG, which is the inventor of the egg coffee, has finally opened a branch in Yokohama's Chinatown on April 23rd, 2018.

This well-known cafe in Vietnam has been in business for over 70 years. Finally, their second shop to open is in Japan!

CAFE GIANG is only a 3-minute walk from Yokohama's Motomachi-Chukagai Station.
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

This is the "egg coffee" with lots of cinnamon on top, ¥480 (including taxes).
The coffee beans are directly imported from Vietnam and are freshly roasted every morning!
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 top, there is the cream is made of eggs and condensed milk which gives it the consistency of custard cream.
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.
Cafe_Giang-_iced_egg_coffee
The "egg coffee" iced, ¥520 (taxes included).

Since both the coffee and the cream are cool it stays particularly creamy! It's not too sweet and the bitterness still comes through a little bit.
It's perfect for the summer!

For those who don't like coffee, in Japan, there's the "Egg Matcha"!

The "Egg Matcha", ¥480 (taxes included).
The matcha's bitterness and the sweetness of the cream go delightfully well together, the drink is quite similar to a matcha latte.
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!

Cafe_Giang-_Banh_mi
At Cafe Giang in Vietnam, you can also get a Banh Mi, ¥520 (taxes included).
In the Banh Mi, there are plenty of vegetables, roasted pork, spices, coriander...and 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!

Finally...

It was my first time trying the "egg coffee", I imagined it to be slightly heavy, but it wasn't at all! It was my first time drinking/eating a drink like this! The cream was fluffy and the egg gave a nice deep taste. Please try it for yourself, and be sure to try the Banh Mi too!

I love travelling and discovering new cuisines. Japan has a panoply of local dishes to try. I also love yoga, coffee, reading, and cycling.
