Gangan (Belitung style fish soup)

This is a Belitung / Belitong Style Fish Soup. Indonesian Popular Novelist Andrea Hirata who wrote the Tetralogi, "Laskar Pelangi", "Sang Pemimpi", and "Edensor" stated the menu as one of his favorite dishes in one interview.

Honestly, this is a very unique dish for me... It has Cassava cut into pieces and added into the soup, Hm.. that's very tempting...
