When it comes to street food, Vietnam has to be one of our top destination for the freshest, tastiest, scrumptious food selection and for the best value. We also tried a couple of other restaurants which were worth mentioning.
Below is a few of our favourite eating spot in Ho Chi Ming (or HCM). We also did a day trip to to the Mekong Delta and it is so touristy, we can hardly recommend it.
Banh Xeo (Lobster Crepes)
A no-frills outdoor eatery famous for their Banh Xeo (a Vietnamese style crepe with shrimp and pork). Make sure to order the grilled mini lobsters with green onion served with rice noodles. You’ll thank me for it later.
There are many Banh Xeo restaurants on this street, so make sure you go to 46A for the real thing.
46A Banh Xeo, Dinh Cong Trang, District 3, HCM
Bánh Cuốn Hải Nam
A no frills restaurant. What you see is what you get and what you get is the best bánh cuốn in the city. The restaurant offer plenty of other options, but I would recommend to stick to the specialty. If you’re in the area drop by and you won’t be sorry.
