Grilled milk rice cake

 A friend of mine gave me present after his trip to Phan Thiet city. He said “Try this! This new grilled milk rice cakes (Com) are good for older people”. By the first glance, I realized there were some differences from the kind of “com” sold for tourists in Phan Thiet. Suddenly, I thought “Oh! This is Com”. I carefully held and examined the pack of grilled milk rice cake, feeling happy like I was holding my old friends. The handmade grilled milk rice cake is really a unique present in Phan Thiet, my hometown.

The past many years, “Com” has been no longer sold in Tet, so It was so amazing that I was holding it. “Com” is cut into 5 slices which is more convenient than the older type of “Com”.

The sweetness of hot “com”, the scent and flavor of gingers spreading out in the throat and then the stomach made me moved because I finally found that familiar flavor after more than 10 years.

Phan Thiet people are very proud of “Com” because it is traditional cuisine that can’t be missed on the ancestral altar when it comes to Tet.

Many Phan Thiet people living far from their hometown would wish to have some packs of “com” on the altar as their tradition and they also want to recall their hometown.

Although “Com” in Phan Thiet is not as famous as “Com lang vong”covered by lotus leave in the north of Vietnam, “Com Phan Thiet” is finely made and its taste is also attractive

I was addicted to “Com” when I was young. When it came to 23rd of December (following the lunar calendar), I kept reminding my mother to by some packs although she had never forgot. “Com” was put on the altar and after the first three days in Tet did I allow to try “Com”.

Because of the big size of the pack of “Com”, we had to divide it into small pieces and invited other people in the family to try. My parents used to enjoy “Com” with Chinese tean or lotus tea. I loved to enjoy “Com” with my friends

“Com” is both the figure of Phan Thiet and the essence passed on from many different generations. It is not only the Tet dish but also a particular local culture in Phan Thiet. It is the signal that Tet is coming.
