Amazing Cá Kho Tộ at Hai’s place – Fish Steak in a Spicy Caramelized Sauce
If you have time for just one meal in Ho Chi Minh City, this is surely “THE place to eat in Saigon”!
Gỏi Củ Hủ Dửa (Coconut Palm Heart Salad)
This lovely residential neighborhood vegetarian restaurant has become one of our regular Saigon dining stops.
So many amazing flavors packed into one bowl of bún mắm
Seafood, meats and veges, all in a scrumptiously rich sweet, tangy, pungent, spicy broth with splashes of garlic, lemongrass, shallots, lime and chili.
Bún Thịt Nướng – BBQ’ing pork at Chị Tuyên
Not far from “tourist central” in Saigon, but authentic and major yummy Saigon street food . Bún Thịt Nướng, grilled marinated pork with rice vermicelli noodles.
The noodles might slither through your chopsticks, but it’s worth it.
Thick udon-like noodles and a pile of real, shell-free crab meat. So good!
Hai munching down Saigon’s best bánh mì at Huynh Hoa
I think I know where you can find the best traditional Vietnamese sandwich in Saigon.
Gỏi đu đủ – Papaya Salad
Perhaps my favorite street food eating adventure in Saigon. Try it – I think you’ll love it!
The gà nướng (bbq’s chicken) and chả (egg, crab, pork loaf) are both AMAZING.
It’s not Saigon Street Food, it’s served “in the alley.” I eat here once a week and still, I’m ready to go back anytime.
