xoi ga

To the uninitiated this may not look all that appetising, however, this is one of my favourite things to eat. It’s xoi ga, or sticky rice and chicken. In this version the chicken is mixed with mushroom, tiny shrimps and a quail egg and encased in the sticky rice which in turn is wrapped in a leaf and cooked in a steamer. I prefer to eat this with a dash of soy sauce, preferably mixed with chili and garlic. Yum. If eaten for breakfast this will “stick to your ribs” all day.
