Tet 2020


Pig Organ Porridge

Chao is Darling Man’s go-to comfort food. It’s often translated as rice porridge which I think does it a great injustice (because I don’t like porridge). The Chinese call their version congee and it comes in all kinds of varieties – fish, chicken, beef and pork. However, in southern and central Vietnam, offal rice porridge is the thang.

I am not an offal fan at all but luckily my girls weekend sidekick is. She taste-tested the Phan Thiet version of chao long (pig organ porridge) and declared it delicious, peppery and crunchy and chewy and very pleasing to the mouth. She might have even muttered something about umami but I can’t be sure. I was busy eating cha cuon!
