Cao Bang cuisine is also famous for dishes made from pork, such as pork marinated with sour rice flour in Bao Lam and Bao Lac, grilled pork or pork rolled in Vietnamese curry leaves in Quang Uyen, roast duck, and roast pork stuffed with Vietnamese curry leaf. The Cao Bang people skillfully combine diverse sources spices from the forest to create many special delicacies such as bees fried with bamboo shoots, sour fish hotpot, aromatic black diamond-shaped sticky rice, fried Tau Quay “stone moss”, chestnut green sticky rice, sweet short cake etc. These dishes are often enjoyed with Lau Pang wine of Ha Quang district (the wine is distilled from the powder of perennial arenga pinnata on limestone mountains, fermented by agarwood fruit. The powder is kept underground for a month, and when autumn comes, it is taken out to be coated in the dew before being distilled).
