The unique delicacies of Cat Ba:
Mountain goat and Liên Minh chicken

Cat Ba Island is renowned not only for its magnificent natural scenery but also for its distinctive culinary specialties, particularly mountain goat and Liên Minh chicken. These dishes are not only local pride but also reflect the rich culture and nature of the area.

Mountain Goat of Cat Ba

The mountain goat of Cat Ba is an indigenous breed that thrives on the island’s limestone terrain, providing an ideal environment for their growth. What makes the flavor of Cat Ba’s mountain goat meat unique is their diverse diet, which includes various medicinal leaves such as Gleditsia and licorice, and even some toxic plants. This diet not only keeps the goats healthy but also ensures their meat is firm, sweet, and uniquely flavorful.

In traditional Eastern medicine, goat meat is highly valued not just for its flavor but also for its nutritional benefits, including alleviating fatigue, back pain, and enhancing vitality. Nearly every part of the goat can be used in medicinal preparations.

Liên Minh Chicken

Liên Minh chicken is a native breed from Cat Ba, primarily raised in Liên Minh village, the highest area on the island surrounded by natural rock barriers. This isolation helps maintain the chicken’s purebred characteristics. The temperate climate and clean environment of Liên Minh contribute to the chicken’s delicious taste, firm and naturally sweet meat.
