Enjoy goat hotpot in a cold day

Goat meat is very delicious, nutritious and helps keep warm in the cold days. So, goat hotpot is suitable for Tet occasion or the cold days in winter when all member in the family meet and eat together.

The chef has to force the goat drinking the wine to let their smell reducing. The goat is burnt on the fire until well-done and pungent. And then meat and bone are separated and aromatized with a lot of flavoring spices before cooking it with medicine herbs in half of day. The goat meat and bone are tender, creating a sweet and flavoring broth, typical of “lẩu dê”.


Unlike other hotpots, “lẩu dê” is boiled in a clay pot by a coal cooker. Little by little, various veggie including fresh cabbage, water morning glory, carrot, celery as well as tofu, “mỳ bánh đa”, a kind of vermicelli and taro are added into the boiling clay pot.

And when foods become tender and imbued with sweet flavor of the stock, let enjoy the dish. Just pick up some hot meat slices, dip it into a special sauce, called “chao”, and then savor, if not devour, the meat sweetness mingled with the spicy, sweet, greasy, and salty of “chao”.  Instead of “chao”, northern people often serve with “tương” that is not less yummy. Additionally, medicine herb fragrance in the broth makes the hotpot more intriguing.


Each restaurant has its own recipe for spices, herbs and sauces. Hope that you can enjoy all kinds.
