Why Thang Co A Quynh Restaurant is special ?

If someone asks what is the specility in Sapa, it must be “Thang Co” as the first recommendation. Originating from Sapa ethnic’s traditional food, it becomes one of the most terrific characteristics of the upland, which seduces lots of tourists to the North West of Viet Nam to come and enjoy.

Thang Co is a traditional food of the Mong ethnic. One typical characteristic of the traditional Thang Co was that the main ingredient was horse meat, instead of the more diversified kinds of meats as the main ingredients like pork, beef, buffalo meat as the recipes of other ethnics like the Kinh, Tay, Nung do it nowadays. Previously, as the main ingredient of this food was horse meat and horse force was one of the most crucial means of transport and delivery of the ethnic, Thang Co was only served on the special occasions like Tet holiday, village’s big crop festivals or enjoyed in the large fair like Bac Ha fair which was not held regularly. But now, for the replacement of the new ingredients like pork and beef and the development of Sapa satisfying with tourists to this land, particularly the gastronomes, Thang Co is more popular and served in more places.
