Several bites of legend at Cha Ca La Vong

This old Hanoi tavern has become legendary thanks to Cha Ca (fried fish), the unique dish that gives it its name.

There is a dish served at Cha Ca La Vong whose recipe has been passed down from generation to generation within the Doan family, and which can be found in all Vietnamese gastronomy books: Cha ca. It consists of filets of monkfish or firm and tasty Lang fish (hemibagrus) cut into chunks, marinated in Indian saffron powder, and fried over a wood charcoal grill.
It is served with cold rice noodles, roasted peanuts, herbs (basil, cilantro, dill) and baby onions, and eaten with mâm tôm (shrimp paste). This recipe makes the legendary Cha Ca La Vong a gastronomic destination in old Hanoi. It has a rustic Vietnamese family atmosphere far from the tourist crowds.
