Hoi An chicken rice

com ga hoi an da nang

I’ve been obsessed with this dish recently. Given Hoi An’s historical Chinese influence, com ga Hoi An is somewhat similar to Hainanese chicken rice. However, to me it is much bolder, spicier and tastier.

The chicken is shredded and mixed with chopped herbs, sliced onions and spices, while the rice is cooked with the chicken broth which gives it a lovely scent and taste. This dish can’t go without toppings of peppermint, shredded green papaya, and pickled vegetable and the central region’s distinctive chili jam.

What a sensational harmony of flavors and colors! No wonder why Com ga Hoi An has become such a food icon of not only Hoi An but also the surrounding central region. In Da Nang, you can find this delicious dish at Hoai Pho restaurant (255 Nguyen Chi Thanh). This eatery specializes in Hoi An dishes such as cao lau, com ga, banh bao banh vac (white rose dumplings)… If you don’t have time to travel to Hoi An from Da Nang, be sure to give this place a try!
