Taste Thang Co dish

The H'Mong people of Ha Giang have a traditional cuisine called Thang Co hot pot. Indigenous folks used to prepare this dish from a whole horse and didn't throw anything away.




Then they added beef to the dish, making it a one-of-a-kind entrée. The dish is prepared in a very straightforward manner by the locals. They thoroughly wash the meat and organs of animals, marinade them in spices, and then place them in a pot of stew with horse bones, viscera, blood, and other ingredients.




About 12 different traditional ethnic minority spices, including ginger, cardamom, tangerine peel, and lemon leaf, are added to make this dish more flavorful. To prepare a delectable Thang Co, all of the ingredients are cooked for hours. The greatest Thang Co dishes can be found in Bac Ha, Muong Khuong, Sa Pa, and Lao Cai.
