Salted Egg Dark Chocolate from Cafe Amazon, Thailand REVIEW (weird and delicious coffee)

Salted Egg Dark Chocolate from Cafe Amazon, Thailand REVIEW (weird and delicious coffee)

It’s no secret that I’m a coffee lover. When I’m traveling around the world, I’m always interested in trying the local coffee, especially if there’s something unusual or unique about it.

While visiting Vietnam, I learned about two really special and delicious coffee drinks: egg coffee from Hanoi and salt coffee from Hue. Both were unexpectedly tasty!

This week, Thailand’s Cafe Amazon chain released a brand-new drink that sort of combines both of those flavors. Today, I taste and review the NEW Cafe Amazon salted egg yolk coffee!

Salted eggs have long been a part of Thai cuisine, but I have to admit that I’ve never been particularly fond of them… too salty! But, after visiting Vietnam and learning how oddly tasty salty coffee could be, I figured I would give this drink a try.

Cafe Amazon offers two new salted egg drinks: salted egg late and salted egg dark chocolate. I had already had coffee earlier in the morning, so I opted for the salted egg dark chocolate drink.

The drink was sweet… maybe too sweet, but the saltiness from the egg yolk helped to cut through it a bit. Don’t forget to give the drink a stir, as the salted egg yolk sits right on top of the cream. Once all of the flavors are mixed in, it’s a really good, well-balanced drink with lots of flavors. The salt from the egg yolk brings out the natural sweetness of the chocolate. And don’t worry, it’s not eggy at all!
