Com Am Phu (Hades Rice): There are many different legends about the name of this dish but anyway this is a special and delicious rice dish. A plate of Com Am Phu is decorated with 7 colors of Cha Lua (Vietnamese sausage), fried egg, Nem Chua (fermented pork meat), shrimp, thinly sliced pork belly, carrot, cucumber, and herbs; all are cut into strands, placed symmetrically and alternatively, white rice is placed in the middle.
