A freshly caught carp is braised, on the bone, in a wok along with beer, tomatoes, scallions, green peppers, and oyster sauce. The local people are used to dealing with foreigners and know that many don't like bones, so they usually serve a variety of fish which has fewer bones.

Where to eat?

Of course, the best place to eat Beer Fish is as near to the river as possible. The tiny villages all along the river can offer this specialty, and there you may even see your fish being caught in the traditional way, and then cooked in front of your eyes. But your nose and mouth will also be happy when you smell and taste this delicious dish.
