Liquid tiramisu? The Vietnamese have been enjoying it for ages! It’s called Vietnamese Egg Cream Coffee (Cà Phê Trứng). We’ll show you how to make this rich, decadent treat that’s both easy and amazingly delicious.

Yes, I know what you’re thinking. It sounds strange. Eggs in coffee is almost unheard of in the western world. When I first heard about it, I instantly pictured an omelette-flavored franken-beverage. Boy, was I wrong. This recipe is AMAZING.

Vietnamese Egg Coffee is extremely thick, sweet, foamy, and rich. Each sweet sip envelops the tongue – almost like it’s swimming in a thick, frothy bath of liquid tiramisu or coffee-flavored eggnog (without the eggnog ‘wang’). The separate layers of dark, bitter coffee and sweet cream contrast each other beautifully, and play a back-and-forth dance on your tastebuds as you drink it.

Visit my website for the full recipe, ingredient list, tools, and tips:

– If you’re concerned about food-borne illness, pasteurized eggs can be used.
– Visit for information on safe food handling.
– Consumption of raw eggs is not recommended and is only done at your own risk.


Visit my website at for answers to the following questions:

• I don’t have a Vietnamese Coffee Filter (Phin). Can I use something else?

• What kind of coffee should I use?

• Why is Cafe du Monde a good alternative? It’s not Vietnamese coffee.

• Why did you recommend canned coffee? I can’t tolerate such peasantry…

• Can I whisk the egg cream by hand?

• Why are the sugar and vanilla optional?

Enjoy your Ca Phe Trung!

As a vietnamese person. Back to the old days we were too poor to buy milk so we had to use egg to replace. That's the main reason this kind of drink was made

Maya Legrand says:

I will think twice about putting so much sugar in my coffee. For years I've been drinking coffee with cream and no sugar, and it tastes much better.

Gustavo Rodriguez says:

and i thought cuban coffee was top notch

Vietnam Visa says:

Thank you for sharing. It is more well known to foreign tourists rather than Vietnamese though.

Jenning Lusong says:

Jorge Machuca says:

Gustavo Ferreira says:

i made it and my god what a good and delicious coffee, i used moka coffee instead and a chocolate truffle perfumed coffee it was just amazing i will definitely try with other coffees

Chieu Duong says:

for everyone out there: you can do this with hot chocolate and it's awesome too.
and I think – in Vietnam, they dont put the coffee in hot water to cook the egg, its just to keep the coffee warm, because here in Vietnam winter we dont have heaters (the drink is supposed to be a winter drink as it's hot), so the coffee could cool off really fast.
And me –personally, I prefer drinking it without stiring/mixing the egg with coffee – I think many people here in Vietnam also do that, you can try!

How come you've not uploaded videos lately? Are you done with youtube? 🙂 Honeysuckle got around to making the Vietnamese egg coffee and it reminded me of when I first saw this video and how mesmerizing all your coffee videos were to me. Sonny from "Best Ever Food Review Show" did a video in Hanoi last week where he featured the egg coffee as well. Hope you are well.

Looks delicious

It's trứng and not trung. If you accentuate the coffee part you might as well accentuate the whole thing correctly. Trung means central or general, trứng means egg.
