Cuc Gach Quan
Despite serving some of the best Vietnamese food in the city in a serene converted house, Cuc Gach Quan‘s location on the outer limits of District 1 is often a deterrent to short-term visitors.
It shouldn’t be.
As at many Vietnamese restaurants, the menu is a weighty tome.
Homemade tofu is creamy and pliant.
Other highlights include soft shell crab and beautifully textured red rice.
An extensive wine list and reasonable prices make it even more imperative to fit in a trip here.
Cuc Gach Quan, 10 Dang Tat Ward Tan Dinh, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam; +84 8 3848 0144
The best authentic Neapolitan pizzas in Ho Chi Minh City are the work of a Japanese chef.
The contemporary Pizza 4P’s gives a pleasing first impression but it’s the quality of the pizzas that linger longest in the memory.
Crispy yet slightly chewy bases have a perfect texture while the toppings — from classic Italian numbers such as margarita and quattro formagio to Japanese fusion creations such as teriyaki and marinated beef — are judiciously applied and bolstered by the use of creamy freshly made mozzarella.

Quan Ut Ut
Vietnam’s culinary love affair with the pig is long established.
Porcine-centered creations such as bun cha (vermicelli noodles with grilled pork meatballs) and thit heo kho (caramelized pork) are among the nation’s most loved dishes.
Yet few could have predicted that one of the hottest tables in HCMC would turn out to be a humble American barbecue joint whose Vietnamese name, Quan Ut Ut, translates as “Restaurant Oink Oink.”
They don’t accept bookings so queues of up to an hour are common as diners wait patiently to, in the words of the owners, “get their ut ut on” and fill up on barbecued meat and a selection of local and imported beers.
Quan Ut Ut, 168 Vo Van Kiet Phuong Cau Ong Lanh, Q.1, Ho Chi Minh City 70000 Vietnam; +84 839 144 500
With its airy setting and immaculate interior design, Monsoon feels like a top-end venue, but stays true to the Asian street dining ideal of great food at low prices.
With Cambodian, Vietnamese, Burmese, Thai and Laotian dishes, it’s one of the few places in town where eaters can mix and match a banquet from across mainland Southeast Asia.
Top picks include a sweet pork curry from Myanmar and a flawless take on Khmer fish amok.
Monsoon Restaurant & Bar Saigon, No.1, Cao Ba Nha, Nguyen Cu Trinh ward, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City 84 Vietnam; +84 8 6290 8899
Banh Xeo 46A
It’s not hard to see why the banh xeo (“sizzling pancake”) has become such a hit with foreigners.
Unlike some Vietnamese creations, there are no challenges or nasty surprises.
Rice flour, water, turmeric powder (the source of the pancakes’ vibrant yellow coloring) and coconut milk are combined to make the batter, which is stuffed with fatty pork, shrimp and bean sprouts, then pan-fried.
The crisp result is served alongside a veritable hedgerow of aromatic herbs and dipped in nuoc cham (fish sauce thinned with water and lemon).
The result is one of the most addictive treats in the Vietnamese culinary armory — this is one of the best venues at which to get hooked.
Banh Xeo 46A, 46A D Dinh Cong Trang District 3, Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam; +84 8 3827 1372
