The Muong Ethnic people who have lived for a long time in Hoa Binh have many unique and traditional delicacies. One of the prime dishes is the grilled fish of Da River that can excite any visitors.
In order to make grilled fish, the fish must be carefully chosen. After being roughly cleaned, the fish is soaked in salt water to get rid of any impurities. People use bamboo sticks to form a grill. Before grilling, the fish are also salted and then put on the charcoal grill until they are edible. Grilled fish then will be displayed on green banana leaves, served with other kinds of seasonal leaves. The leaves are full of sweet and sour taste, both overpowering the fishy taste and stimulating the taste, thus creating a perfect combination with the flavour of the grilled fish.
World Children’s Day is celebrated each year on 20 November, the date in 1959 when the UN General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child. The aim of World Children’s Day is to promote international togetherness, awareness among children worldwide, and improving children’s welfare!
