Cơm Tấm - Vietnamese Broken Rice by Rivière

Vũng Tàu, Bà Rịa Vũng Tàu, VN


‘Tam Rice’, or broken rice, once known as the poor’s rice as the farmers used to collect the fractured rice grains that broke during the milling and sold them for cheap. However, over years, people have become rather fond of this dish and it’s now served as an everyday meal.
The basic Tam Rice includes grilled pork chops, fried egg and vegetable aliments such as pickles, tomatoes and cucumbers.
We also take steamed egg cake (chả trứng)shredded pork with pork skin (bì), meatballs (xíu mại) or braised beef (bò kho) as optional toppings.
At some places, we also fry pork fat with sliced scallions to make a sauce for extra flavor.
