I tried fantastic cha ca, a Vietnamese fish stew, on a recent trip to Hanoi. Is there a place in New York that can come close? For that matter, what's the current thinking on the best Vietnamese place in town?
Think of this as a lighter, fresher take on chicken Parmesan: We ditch the breading on the poultry and let juicy cherry tomatoes stand in for jarred pasta sauce. A little grated carrot adds just enough sweetness to round out the acidity.
