Update: May 10, 2023
International food magazine TasteAtlas recently selected Com Tam, Vietnamese broken rice, as one of the top 100 most popular rice dishes throughout Asia.

According to the newswire, Com Tam is a traditional Vietnamese dish that is typically sold as a street food. It normally consists of broken and imperfect rice grains that have been traditionally thrown away after the milling process, but nowadays it makes up a signature dish of Ho Chi Minh City.

The magazine revealed that broken rice boasts a texture that is similar to normal rice, just smaller. When served, Com Tam is accompanied by numerous toppings, including fried eggs, shredded pork skin, grilled pork chops, or deep-fried fish patties.

The usual garnishes include lime wedges, chopped spring onions, and mint, while accompaniments served on the side include sliced tomatoes and cucumbers, pickled vegetables, or dipping sauces. 

Furthermore, two other Vietnamese dishes were also named in the list, including Com Chien, Vietnamese Fried Rice, and Xoi Ga, Sticky Rice and Chicken.

TasteAtlas is widely viewed as one of the world's most prestigious traditional culinary experience travel guide websites, featuring a catalog of more than 10,000 types of food and drink from around the world. The recipes posted on this website are greatly appreciated by both food critics and journalists.
