Cơm Gà / Chicken with Tumeric Rice

Fried shallots, mayo, pickled veggies, and a sweetened, gingery, chilli fish sauce is topped on traditional southern Com Ga / "come ga" while the northern Hai Nam style involves more ginger in the sauce, plus chicken fat and garlic are used in place of tumeric for aroma and more natural color.

Ha Com Ga is located on 75 Ngo Gia Tu.  For Hai Nam style, 44 Nguyen Binh Khiem is where the famous Lac Canh Restaurant is located, but you will have to call ahead to pre order the very dish that my grandfather perfected there under French occupation.
