Canh Mang (Bamboo Soup)

I just love the mininalist presentation of Canh Mang; however, don’t let the look fools you. Take a bite of the bamboo and you’ll find the tenderness to be pleasing. The broth it just amazing and I don’t know how my mom made it. Although it looks clear and plain like water, the tang is just perfect. Not too heavy, not too sweet, not too salty, it’s just right. I am not sure if the chicken gives off the juicy flavor to the broth or the broth enhances the vigorous taste of the chicken or they compliment each other. Whatever it is, Canh Mang is scrumptious. Thanks ma.
