Com is Hanoi typical delicacy

Com – a typical delicacy of Hanoi, made from fragrant young sticky rice. Yellow flower sticky rice is often favored to create Com with the most authentic flavor. Besides, you can use many other types of sticky rice such as fragrant sticky rice, flower sticky rice, phoenix sticky rice,…

Each soft grain of Com has a cool colostrum taste and a unique aroma and must go through many careful processing steps to create the perfect batch of green rice. After roasting, sticky rice will be pounded and winnowed to remove the husk, then cooked with green rice leaf juice.
