Tung lamaow - A specialty of Cham people
 Font Size:     |  

Tung lamaow is a famous traditional dish of Cham people in the border town of Chau Doc in An Giang Province.

At first glance, tung lamaow looks like Chinese sausage but actually, it is different. While Chinese sausage is made from pork, tung lamaow is made from beef because Cham people in An Giang Province are Muslims, so they do not eat pork.

Tung lamaow is wrapped by cow intestines while its filling includes beef, cow’s fat, rice, garlic and pepper. After that, it is dried for three days.

To eat tung lamaow, Cham people grill or steam it. Tung lamaow is served with fish sauce, salad, and bread or rice.
