Saigon Street Food by Night
- Eat your way through Saigon (aka Ho Chi Minh City) the way locals do
- Sample southern Vietnamese cuisine
- Saigonese coffee and beer
- See the city at night
Saigon's street food scene is nothing short of a food-fans dream. What better way to make the most of your stay here – and stomach space – than having an in-the-know local show you some of the market's must-eats.
Surrounded by the hustle and bustle of local life and the spicy aromas of street stalls, our tasting tour kicks off with some authentic appetisers. Learn how Chinese food slots seamlessly into Vietnamese cuisine as you try dry squid porridge known as chao muc, and xa xui, a Cantonese-style barbecue pork.
We continue with a sample of banh bo banh tieu – a sweet sponge cake that's a firm favourite with children – and a strong cup of Saigonese coffee. Moving on for more magnificent eats, there's barbecue meatballs and rice cakes, deep-fried tofu with lemongrass or salted egg yolk with green chilli, all washed down with an ice-cold Saigon beer. You certainly won't go hungry here.
- One coffee or tea
- One beer or soft drink
