Mountain Goat Meat of Ninh Binh

Discovering Ninh Binh's lyrical and fascinating scenery without sampling the local delicacy of Ninh Binh goat meat (thit de nui) means you haven't yet arrived in the Ancient Capital. This is a delectable cuisine, either nutritionally or medically, that attracts tourists from all over the world.




Goat meat in Ninh Binh is superior to that of other places for two reasons: in Ninh Binh, there are many limestone mountains excellent for breeding goats; and in order to prepare a nice rare goat meat meal, locals must complete numerous stages ranging from processing to mixing.

Locals claim that goat meat from goats weighing 15–25 kg is the most delectable, as it is neither too tough nor too flaccid and has a pleasant flavor.




In terms of nutritional value, goat meat has a higher protein level than beef and contains less fat, thus it appeals to a wide range of people. Mountain goats will be beaten to release undesirable odors, then deplumed, barbecued for a brief period, disemboweled, and embalmed for over ten minutes with holy basil or duckweed leaves, then sliced down and processed meat.

Furthermore, when it comes to preparing dozens of delectable dishes with mountain-raised goats, Ninh Binh residents are true masters of the kitchen. If you have the opportunity to visit this location, pick up a menu and you'll find a long list of unusual and distinctive foods, each with its own distinct flavor.




Goat meat combined with lemon juice (dê tái chanh), lemongrass and coconut goat, stir-fried goat meat (dê tái lăn), grilled goat brisket, goat hotpot, goat gruel, steamed goat meat, and roasted goat are all examples of tasty dishes prepared from Ninh Binh mountain goat meat.

The rare-goat meat (testicle of the male goat) can be considered the best of the dishes cooked with goat flesh.
