Yaaa…It’s my first blog post. And I am really excited to do it. The subject I have decided to begin is about FOOD DISCOVERING. I am not Saigonese but I have been staying here for more than 10 years. I can say I DO LOVE FOOD IN SAIGON. Thus, My blog start with a very simple purpose: “share what I ate”.
By listing down all of the listed Food Places here, I had to go back to and took photo myself for realest review hehe(a task but also the way to enjoy those again ;). .Hope my effort will be worth & help you guys have a wonderful food journey in SaiGon…
📌📌📌 NOTICE: Here are the Local Food – Places that I like a lot and be well-known for the local people in Ho Chi Minh City. . If you’re traveling, why don’t try somethings that different & truely local…
Some restaurants will not offer you a good & comfortable place to seat. I have to say again IT IS ABOUT THE FOOD (exclude 3 restaurants with good decoration, the rest will be street & some even don’t have seat – but believe me it’s better than any other place to find the same food 😎).It’s worth to try one ya 🙂
Now let’s get started!💃 💃 💃
What to eat in Ho Chi Minh City? – 10 FOOD YOU SHOULD TRY.🥙🥙🥙
Vietnamese people call it “Bánh mỳ” – it’s a Bread but for Vietnam it looks quite different. It’s very famillar in Sài Gòn that you can find many people selling it among to the street.
The place I would recommend you to try is “Bánh Mỳ Anh Toàn” . It is in District 1, Next to Takashimaya – Sai Gon center that’s very convenient for you to go & buy. It’s also in front of SaiGon Square that you can come for shopping and drop by :).
When you come there you will see a young man selling Bánh Mỳ & Bánh Giò. There will be many customer seating around, ordering food, quick eating and then move. He’s very friendly & funny (but I am not sure he can speak english).
It open after 3PM & takes 20K per a bánh mỳ. I’s cheap for such a very very delicious food.
You can seat & enjoy the food. From there you can easily walk to the walking Street, Ben Thanh Market or Bui Vien.
📍 Where to go: 92 Nam Ky Khoi Nghia, District 1
Bánh đa cua dì Lý
“It taste like home’s food with a very special warm decoration. Its name is the name of Lý – Founder of the restaurant. That’s why when you come, you will have the feeling like its a small house of vietnamese family”
There are many items for you to try in the menu. But the most delicous is “Bánh đa cua” & “Chả giò”.
Price: 80.000 VND ~ 3.5$
📍 Where to go: 103 Dong Khoi, District 1, HCMC
NEM – Bún chả Hà Nội & Nem Cua Bể – Crab spring roll
There’s only 2 main items on the menu – the crab spring roll (nem cua bể) and the grilled meat (bun Cha). Both items are delicious. The sweet tofu dessert (soy bean curd) was a nice end to the meal too.
This restaurant is very busy at lunch. You will need to wait around 30 minutes to wait when ordering this food.
Nem Cua Bể can eat together with noodle, vegetable (), fish soft. There are 2 type of fish soft : North & South Vietnam.
📍15E Nguyen Thi Minh Khai, District 1, HCMC
Hủ Tiếu Mực Ông Già
Located in the very old corner between Saigon, hidden in the alley, it always has many people come to eat everyday. Almost of them are local & officer working nearby. From the corner, you have to go for 5-7 meters and Hu Tieu Muc Ong Gia will be right on the right.
📍 62/3 Ton That Hiep, District 1
