Thang co means « a pot of water » in the Mong language.
.
But it is more than just water or a typical pot.
.
It is a giant cast-iron pan containing lots of innards, bones, fat and meat from a cow, buffalo or horse.
.
In fact, the Mong are believed to have invented the food to make use of what was left of the animals after their best parts had been taken.
.
.
A Mong man in Ha Giang Province said they do not use a lot of seasoning in thang co, only salt and a pepper-like spice locally known as mac khen.
.
When everything becomes really soft, it is time to eat, he said.
.
Locals eat thang co like hotpot, meaning each have their own bowl and keep dipping into the pot.
