Giang Café in Hanoi offers a taste of nostalgia with old-style furniture and decor. The shop sits deep in a small alley on Nguyen Huu Huan Street in Hoan Kiem District, and its specialty is egg coffee. Favored particularly on cold days, the coffee is a blend of coffee and egg whites, folded with sugar and drunk hot or cold. The Telegraph specifically recommended the unlikely beverage when it named Hanoi one of the world’s 17 greatest cities for food last month.

This bar/cafe opened in 2008 and moved to its current location on Tong Dan Street near the Opera House and the Metropole Hotel in 2014. The coffee and bar is favored by many foreigners, partly thanks to the cozy design.

To many Hanoi coffee lovers, the Trang Tien outlet is their favorite in the Cong coffee chain, partly because it stands at the heart of the city with a long balcony facing the Opera House and looking down on the traffic.
