What to Eat in Lao Cai?
Thang Co : Thang Co is widely known as the most traditional dish of H’mong ethnic group. This food is made from beef, buffalo, pork and horse meat. However, local residents often use horse organs such as heart, liver, bone, and meat to cook this dish. All these organs are put in a big pan of water and stew in a long time. Some particular seasoning and vegetables are often served with the dish to reduce the fat taste.
Lon cap nach (carried-under-arm pig) : This name is given to this type of pig because the pigs are very small, just round 10kg. It is ‘home pig” but it’s raised in the field or in the forest. After being cleaned and embalmed, the pig will be grilled or roasted as a whole. Its meat is very thin: the first layer is a crisp skin then a soft sweet layer of pulp, just 2 centimeters thick; and in the deepest layer is bones, usually small in appearance and soft so that we can eat all of them if not the skin bones.
Bac Ha sour noodle : Despite being made from the same ingredients as Hanoi noodle, Bac Ha noodle taste is particular and special.
In order to process sour noodle, the chef uses indispensable raw materials: pickles, green vegetables (lettuce, basil) finely chopped; pounding roasted sesame and peanuts; a few seals to add special flavor; and of course noodles and broth. Before tasting this food, you should add some salt because this noodle will be slightly fainter for people from other places. Sour Noodle should be served cold, so it is the good choice for summer. If you visit Lao Cai in winter, there is a little chance for you to taste it.
