In recent days, Vietnamese Guinness declared that three best fish mix in Vietnam. Mixture of Doctor Fish (Gỏi Cá Mè) of Bac Giang is one of them. In the variety of fish, doctor fish is one of cheapest one and easy to buy. However, the quality and taste is similar with other one like tuna or carp. To make this food is not easy, so I suggest you should go to Bac Giang to enjoy it. The local residents have a lot of experiences in making and they also know clearly ingredients as well as sauce to make this food is more delicious.
