ITINERARY

Street food is well and truly at the heart of this bustling city, but with so much on offer it’s difficult to know what to choose. Dont worry, our guide will help you have a nice street food trip.

We will pick you up at your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City Center.

Before beginning our fascinating Saigon food tour, we will give a Southern style scarf as a Vietnamese souvenir. Then, we will ride through busy and narrow streets/alleys of Saigon with a local Vietnamese driver (well trained and speaking English).

We will stop for:

Bò Bía - Rolled Bía: a very popular Saigon street food. It's a refreshing crunchy rice paper roll filled with jicama, Chinese sausage, herbs served with soya bean paste. Then we enjoy with a cup of Nước Mía - sugarcane juice.

The next stop of our Saigon food tour on scooters is Banh Xeo: "sizzling cake" or Vietnamese savoury fried pancake, the size is as big as the skillet, with choice of pork or seafood or mushrooms served with fresh herbs and crunchy vegetables.Following with Frozen Passion Fruit Flan - special homemade recipes.
