Smaller, tastier, healthier: the Van Dinh duck

The name of Van Dinh village in Hanoi's Ung Hoa district will ring a bell in the minds of traditional food aficionados all over the country. For hundreds of years, the 'Vit co Van Dinh' (small-sized duck of Van Dinh) has been well known for its special taste and featured on the menu of many restaurants.

One of the popular recipes with the 'vit co Van Dinh' is roast duck.

Before the duck is roasted, it should be marinated with galangal, lemongrass, spicy and mac mat (a kind of wild leaf found in northern provinces like Cao Bang).
