Description:

"Com hen Song Huong" (or "Com hen" in short) is the very simple and low-priced specialty of Hue, the ancient citadel of Vietnam. Accordingly, the way of serving this special kind of food is of great simplicity and deliciousness.

"Com hen" has a sweet-smelling flavor of rice, onion, and grease, as well as strange tastes of sweet, buttery, salty, sour, bitter, and peppery-hot. You have to arrive to Hen river-islet in the Perfume River to have the original Com hen. However, you can find out the dish on some streets in Hue City.

Where to find it? It is very easy as "Com hen" is popular everywhere in Hue and these days, elsewhere in Hue restaurants in Vietnam. More favorably, it is a low-priced specialty, thus you could eat it in luxurious restaurants in Hue or even in vendoring mobile shops on the streets.
