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.

We had the most amazing time last night on our private tour of HCMC. Our guide Hai and driver Eric were both very friendly, entertaining and knowledgeable about the history of Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City. Despite the appearance of chaos on the streets with the millions of scooters/motor bikes and cars Eric managed to make us feel at ease with his careful driving. We enjoyed tasting and experienced traditional Vietnamese foods with the locals, and even though not really foods we were used to Hai managed to encourage fussy eaters to try. If your undecided on which tour to take, you definitely can’t go past this private tour in open jeep also very welcoming in the late afternoon heat.

Even though we had spent a few days and seen the tourist hotspots, this was an amazing - we would say essential- part of seeing HCMC. Our trip included a wonderful dinner at Rice Terrace Restaursnt, which we would never have found, and trips to Skybar, the new VIP neighborhood, Seafood Market and drives through surrounding suburbs. Wow! Strongly recommend.

C'était super, chauffeurs prudents et très attentionnés, la guide très gentille, nous a bien expliqué la vie locale, excursion très bien organisée, très bons restaurants, parfait.
