Another interesting chicken dish from Vietnam: Ga Tan.
Literally meaning “fall-off-the-bone chicken”, they are simmered in a variety of medicinal herbs (a recipe originally from China) and said to be good for your health. I found this one in Hanoi, but they are not always available face down in soda cans. (Though bonus to this woman for her presentation skills!)
Not for the squeamish, but interesting to discover (and quite tasty). Also not your usual chicken soup!
