Ho Chi Minh City Street Food Tour with Dinner

Even if you love to eat Vietnamese food back home, the sheer culinary range on offer in the country can be bewildering. Discover Southern Vietnamese cuisine on this Ho Chi Minh City foodie walking tour led by a gastronomic guide. Besides favorites, such as coffee, beer, and fried banana, savor specialties, such as squid soup (chao muc) and Chinese-style dim sum (ha cao).

What to Expect

Greet your guide and fellow foodies in central Ho Chi Minh City and head straight for the street stalls for squid soup (chao muc) and barbecued pork (xa xui). Sample a street food called banh bo banh tieu (a bit like a savory doughnut) and then learn how Cantonese, Teochew, and Hakka Chinese migrated to Ho Chi Minh City.

After a classic Vietnamese coffee served local style, discover that Chinese influence as you dine on local dim sum, spring rolls and barbecued beef meatballs. Then head to Bui Vien for a fried banana dessert.

No Ho Chi Minh City food tour would be complete without an ice-cold beer, so your tour will end at a beer stall, beer in hand. Your guide will be glad to provide tips for exploring further or just help you get a taxi back to your accommodation.

Street food

Delicious food that you can only experience if you are with a “local” Tan was an excellent host who provided plenty of entertainment and information, highly recommend if you are keen to try different food than restaurant recommendations

Delicious eating tour of the city

Danh aka "Happy Buddha" took a group of ~10 on a street food tour that hit 5-6 spots. It's nice to know what to eat and how to eat from a local. Danh was very knowledgeable about not only food, but the country overall -...More

A good way to experience food

Turned up at the meeting point and it started raining. Soon after, it was bucketing down with rain. The guide (Tri) said it was a no-go due to the rain but I managed to reschedule for 2 days later without any issue. 2 days later...More
