The Best Dishes and Restaurants for Dining in Vietnam

Cha Ca La Vong in Ha Noi

A meal here is a memorable, do-it-yourself affair on the beat-up second floor of a restaurant as old as the hills (and it looks like it has never been painted). The food does all the talking: a unique dish of whitefish flash-fried in lots of peanut oil with dill and turmeric.
