Cha Ca Thang Long (or Cha Ca Ha Noi)  is a famous dish in Ha Noi,  the capital of Vietnam.

Tourists flock into the streets because of the gorgeous aroma of this dish that no one can resist.There are so many ways to serve this dish, like the family style with rice paper, red leaf lettuce, rice noodles, roasted peanuts, and all the herbs that are required for this dish. The fish is then marinated with ginger, galangal , garlic, and turmeric before grilling over charcoal or simply cooked in a cast-iron skillet. Family and friends can get together to drink beer and enjoy this meal.  This is a dish that I am so proud to introduce to Westerners. ” (Source: Ms. Lan, Enjoy Life).
