Mom's Chao Vit (Vietnamese Rice Porridge with Duck)

14 Mom's Chao Vit (Vietnamese Rice Porridge with Duck)

After such a full day of eating from Pok Pok - Portland to Tabor - Portland to Kenny & Zuke's Delicatessen - Portland, I was quite happy to come home to my mom's chao vit (Vietnamese rice porridge with duck) for dinner. Such a light, soothing end to a jam-packed day.

  1. I don't mind having this everyday. I grew up eating rice porridge for breakfast.

  2. That looks delectable. I've had the chicken version, but with duck it must be heavenly.

  3. Chao Long is one of my favorite comfort foods.

  4. Pepy,
    I could definitely eat this often.

    Both versions are good!

    I think chao is just so comforting too.
