Ga Tan, stewed sweet herbal chicken soup, is a Hanoi specialty and a deeply-guarded traditional recipe incorporating a special mixture of secret herbs and spices handed down from parent to child over generations.
Why do people like Ga tan
gà tần (a chicken soup) is a combination of instant noodles, mugwort and oriental herbs. With such not only yummy but super healthful ingredients, it is a common dish for sick people, especially after they have recovered. Mỳ gà tần is far from visually appealing anyway, and this highly popular street place serves a particularly unappetising variant. Luckily, it’s delicious. Best served when hot, this would not be the top choice in boiling summers, but in bleak winters in Hanoi.
