13 Stages – Media Tasting | Epicurious Caniggia

At 13 stages, steaming is their signature style of clean & healthy cooking. And it’d be counter effective to be offering greasy rice. Their rice has no traces of the oils, but is not lacking in the fragrance & flavor of typical chicken rice. Their soup is also light & clear, that’s to my liking.
