Saigon: Street Food Evening Tour

1. Saigon: Street Food Evening Tour

Your small group (maximum 12 Passengers) Saigon food tour kicks off with some authentic local appetizers such as chao muc (a dry squid porridge) and xa xui (Cantonese barbecued pork). Learn how Chinese food has been integrated into Vietnamese cuisine as you inhale the spicy flavors of the street stalls and watch local life unfold before your eyes in the heart of Saigon. Your immersion into local life continues as you make your way to the corner of Nguyen Cong Tru and Calmette for a unique street food called banh bo banh tieu, which recalls memories of many Saigonese childhoods. It wouldn’t be a true local experience without enjoying coffee the way Saigonese coffee aficionados do on a daily basis. Head to a popular local hem of Saigon to enjoy a cup. Experience the local style of taking your coffee and feel right at home. Next up is another one of the city’s iconic street food dishes: ha cao (Chinese-style dim-sum), bo bia (Saigonese spring roll) and bo cuon mo chai (barbecued beef meatballs). 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 flavors are truly unforgettable . Then head to Bui Vien to pick up a Vietnamese fried banana for dessert, a new version of the traditional version that is popular with locals.

Miss Love was friendly and chatty and was an excellent guide. There were only four of us in the group which was perfect. We were taken to places we would never have found on our own and tried foods that we had never tasted before. We would certainly recommend this tour to any tourists and travellers in Saigon.

The food was fantastic and our guide Thuong yu went out of her way to make sure we had a great time! Definitely a must do!

Dean was fantastic. He kept the group talking, encouraged questions and shared a lot of knowledge!

Really great tour- the tour guide was great and all the food was delicious

Tan was a really nice guy. We learned a lot and had a lot of fun!
