Cơm tấm, or broken rice

Cơm tấm, or broken rice
Is a Vietnamese dish made from rice with fractured rice grains.
Tấm refers to the broken rice grains, while cơm refers to cooked rice

The main ingredient, broken rice
is a traditionally cheaper grade of rice produced by damage in milling. It is mainly used as a food industry ingredient in America and Europe, but in West Africa and South East Asia is used for human consumption.
Broken rice has a lower fiber and nutrient content, but generally has a similar energy content to intact rice.

Com Tam / Vietnamese Broken Rice Plate

This is so good and it's hard to find in Singapore. It comes with your choice of meat, salad, shrimp cake, egg cake, rice, shredded pork, and fish sauce! Portions a gigantic for Asian standards.
