"Cơm Tấm enchants foreign diners with its plainness and tastiness. Martin Yan, a foreign chef, who has been very familiar to Vietnamese TV viewers, has spent much affection on Cơm Tấm which is made simply but tastes good. Cơm Tấm with grilled pork ribs brought glory to Christine Ha, a Vietnamese-origin blind lady, at Master Chef America in 2012. The dish has captured attention of the chefs’ circle
and the public. Moreovet, overseas Vietnamese of many generations have spared no efforts to bring fame to Cơm Tấm in foreign countries, for example, Thanh’s Cơm Tấm restaurant and Cơm Tấm Thuận Kiều restaurant in Orange County, California, the US”.
