Brief HIstory and the first egg coffee store in Vietnam
Egg coffee is indeed a famous drink of Giang coffee shop, which was founded by Mr. Nguyen Giang in 1946 when he was working as a bartender for the famous five-star Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi hotel. The shop is one of the oldest coffee brands in Hanoi and is named after its owner, Nguyen Van Giang.
The famous egg coffee dish in Giang was specifically modified from the Capuchino drink made in Metropole at that time. According to Mr. Nguyen Tri Hoa (the youngest son of Mr. Giang), the owner of Giang coffee shop at 39 Nguyen Huu Huan, then Café Giang was born around 1946, at 90 Cau Go Street. After the 1955 reform, the shop moved to 7 Hang Gai. This place is associated with the memory of many Hanoians.
