I remember, as a child, reading an old book where the kids drank egg creams. I begged my mom to let me try one. Finally, she let me have one in a dingy old diner. I was horrified by it. No egg? No cream? Not overly sweet? Misleading!
This year, I tried a soda sữa hột gà with my friend in a great Vietnamese restaurant in Chicago. That was what I wanted as a kid, all those years ago. We both loved it. I’ve craved it a few times since then (like now)
It’s light yet heavy, sweet but not overwhelming, and not nearly as strange as it sounds. Think of a lighter, unspiced eggnog.
1 T sweetened condensed milk
1 egg yolk
seltzer (as needed, 1-2 cups)
