Vietnam Traditional street food tour

7 reviews

If you are now in Ho Chi Minh City, seeking new cuisine experiences, this is a great chance for you to try Saigon's specialties at reasonable prices. This traditional Vietnam streetfood tour will show you all kinds of must-try dishes in every corner of this city.

At 5:30 p.m., our drivers will pick you up at your accommodation or your specified places. We will kick off by going to Nguyen Thiet Thuat apartment in district 3. Nearly half a century old, Nguyen Thien Thuat Apartment is an apartment complex of hustle and bustle in the heart of District 3. Constructed in 1968, houses in the apartment are mostly owned by working men living in the surroundings. Like other old apartment buildings in Saigon, there are a lot of car parks, coffee shops, small restaurants at the foot of Nguyen Thien Thuat Apartment. As the home of the majority of working people, affordable eateries develop around the neighborhood. Therefore, Nguyen Thien Thuat apartment is considered as a mini food fair of district 3.
After a short walk through the area, we continue on our itinerary to a flower market in district 10, which is not very far from there. Being considered as the "Dalat flower garden of Saigon”, Ho Thi Ky flower market was established in the 1980s and is the largest wholesale flower market in Saigon. When you come here, you will be surprised that the price is only half as cheap as other markets. It sells a wide range of flowers, from domestic ones like lilies, daisies, orchids ... to imported flower varieties such as Ecuadorian roses, red peony, tulip ... Ho Thi Ky Market operates throughout 24 hours because this is the focal point of both Saigon and the Western region.

After going through the "flower path", you may be surprised by the food area located right on the same street. This food-trading area named “the Cambodia market”. Here, you can enjoy countless specialties of the South. The first dish we recommend to you is Thai seafood noodles. Thai noodle is made based on the idea of combining the famous Tomyum of Thailand with the famous sour soup of people in the West of Vietnam. And since then, Thai noodle dishes have been distributed throughout Saigon. A bowl of Thai noodles is full of fresh but not fishy seafood, a lot of beef mixed with sour soup. In addition, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the famous street food of young Saigon people like tornado potatoes, rice paper with tamarind sauce, peach tea, avocado ice-cream, coconut ice-cream, ... in the busy food court. The only dish you cannot miss is the baked banana rice paper. You can try your best by making a piece of baked banana rice paper and enjoy this unique flavor.

After satisfying your appetite in this street food heaven, we will take you to another food-selling area in district 4. Here you will have the opportunity to try the traditional Vietnamese bread. A bread fully filled with pork, bacon, butter, and spices will make you fall in love right at the first bite. We will finish our food adventure by a sensational dish of matcha or egg flan cake.

At the end of the tour, our tour guides will take you back to your hotel and say goodbye to you.

Biggest Wholesale Flower Market

Ho Thi Ky is one of the biggest flower markets in Saigon since 1987, which  is really famous for fresh and colorful flowers carried from different parts of Vietnam.

The lively beauty and diversity of flowers can get visitors stunning at the first time. This market opens 24/7 and is always bustling, rusty and energetic, especially in special events and holidays.

Old mysterious apartment building

Built in 1968, Nguyen Thien Thuat building has kept plenty of memories of Saigon from the Wartime up to now. It’s worth to come and enjoy the ancient atmosphere, which is unique and totally out of place among the modern Saigon.

This is an integrated destination which has lots of residents from many parts of Vietnam to come and live for a long time. That’s the reason why its cuisine is really fascinating.

Banh mi ( Vietnamese bread )

Mentioned as the best street food around the world by Condé Nast Traveler magazine, banh mi has been listed as a must-try dish when coming to Vietnam. It stuffed with meat, vegetable, butter, one or two tablespoon of meat and chili sauce. Customers can choose from a wide variety to fill inside the baguette such as fried egg, pate, grilled pork, pork roll etc. and vegetable (coriander, cucumber, onion, carrot etc). Banh mi is really tasty and can easily satisfy anyone’s taste.

Cambodia market with countless food

In the recent years, the Cambodia market has suddenly become a new street food paradise for Saigon people. In this unique market, we can find traditional Cambodian dishes or Vietnamese, Chinese cuisine, or even new kind of food imported to Saigon.

Matcha or egg flan cake

In Vietnam, flan is a common dessert made of eggs, milk and condensed milk and caramel. After it was done, the flan was flipped into a plate and topped with shaved ice. The balance between greasy and sweet flavors will make you feel like to eat more.
