Description

Ready to eat your way through the heart of Ho Chi Minh City. Experience the soul of Saigon through its world-famous food on an evening food tasting tour alongside a local guide. Visit places favored by locals and enjoy the most iconic (and delicious) southern Vietnamese street food dishes. Explore markets and street stalls and see the city come to life as the sun goes down.

Your small group Saigon food tour starts with some authentic local appetizers such as chao muc (a dry squid porridge) and xa xiu (Cantonese barbecued pork), while your guide fills you in on how Chinese food has been integrated into Vietnamese cuisine.

Since it wouldn’t be a true local experience without enjoying coffee the way locals do, the next stop is a popular local spot for excellent Saigonese coffee.

Next up on our Saigon food adventure is another one of the city’s iconic street food dishes: bo cuon mo chai (barbecued beef meatballs) and fried rice flour cake with egg. These dishes are some of the most popular and preferred dishes by southerners, and you can find them everywhere, from street stalls to fancy restaurants. What makes them so beloved is that the ingredients are so strikingly simple, yet the tastes and flavours are truly unforgettable (we promise).

We’ll cap off our Saigon street food tour with, what else, street beer. At this street beer stall, we will outfit you with a cold Saigon Beer with peanuts and rice crackers and taste some deep-fried tofu with lemongrass or salted egg yolk with green chili. This is a great chance to mingle with locals – not a bad way to end the evening, is it.

We’ve reached the end, but your local guide is happy to provide tips for exploring the area further or assist you in getting a taxi back to your accommodation.

Guide was very good and food choices excellent. However the routing was not good as I’ve spent much of it walking along a very busy road. Ho Chi Minh has some lovely backstreets so I suggest a bit better route planning would make this tour more enjoyable.

Our guide was very knowledgable and spoke the best english of anyone we have interacted with while in country. This tour allowed us to try things we would not have tried or found otherwise. Well worth the money.
