If you want to experience an authentic twist on Asia’s favorite foodstuff, Mai Chau Resturant’s bamboo cooked rice is one of the finest ways to enjoy the staple. Hòa Bình province is famous for its extremely soft and aromatic upland glutinous rice. It is soaked overnight to soften it and then mixed with sliced coconut meat. The rice is then packed tightly into freshly cut bamboo tubes, wrapped in cane or banana leaves and grilled for two hours on an open wooden stove. When cooked the fresh bamboo is split and the white rice is unwrapped, revealing its unique aroma. Hòa Bình speciality bamboo rice has a surprisingly complex flavor that will leave you amazed. Mai Chau’s bamboo rice will ensure you never see the white stuff in the same way again.
