An egg cream is a soda containing neither egg nor cream, which was once more popular on the East Coast than any bottled brand of soda. Egg cream stands used to abound the way upscale coffeehouses do now. Eventually, bottled sodas proved more cost-efficient than preparing individual egg creams from milk, chocolate syrup, and carbonated water. Where to find an egg cream, which may soon become an endangered species? At D.Z. Akin's, you can order yours with low-fat milk and low-fat chocolate syrup. Egg creams are considered by some connoisseurs as the perfect accompaniment to any lunch. Even if you're ordering a soup and a sandwich, it's the egg cream that settles your stomach.
