I eat these dishes quite often, esp with pho and soup.  The meat is tender, succulent, and chewy in some parts with rich flavors.  I'm also curious if any type of chicken can be made to taste like this? How do you know you're not being served regular cage-raised chicken but cooked the gà đi bộ way?

I hope they don't resort to adding toxic additives like Ddt or something to imitate the texture.

If you see it cross the road then it's a walking chicken.

Farm raised chicken lives in luxury, they just eat and sleep all day.  They even get to ride a car to market instead of walking, it's called 'gà đi xe hơi'.  Those chickens are just plain lazy, they won't even wanna taste good for you.


Back in VN, my grandma has a few of those walking chicken.  She can snatch one with one hand and hold it upside down to calm it.
