Ho Chi Minh City Street Food Tour with Dinner
From US$32,00

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.
