Hanoi’s original cha ca eatery. Cha Ca is a northern specialty consisting of river fish, turmeric, dill, peanuts, noodles and a fair load of oil. It’s all that’s served in this busy and occasional abrupt Ol Quarter eatery that dates back more than one hundred years. Not to be missed during a visit to Hanoi. Don’t be afraid to sample the pungent fermented crab sauce, mam tom that goes with it. It’s essential for the true cha ca flavour and it’s no more smelly than your average blue cheese.  Located in the old quarter street named after the signature dish - Pho Cha Ca - Cha Ca La Vong is a lively local space set over two floors
