Benefit from pick-up at your hotel in selected areas of Ho Chi Minh City, and then head by taxi to a local district which is known as a street food paradise to taste authentic banh xeo and banh khot (rice pancakes) away from the tourist crowds. Stroll along a street known for its barbecue seafood vendors and head to a local-favorite restaurant to taste the best bo la lot" (beef in wild betel leaves). Sample a tasty Bot Chien, pan-fried rice cakes with egg and spring onions which is cooked by a local chef with over 25 years experience, and then quench your thirst with a sugar cane juice mixed with a little orange. Continue your food adventure with an authentic banh mi (sandwich) and experience the perfect fusion of 4 delicious flavors with one bite! Walk into the old apartments of Nguyen Thien Thuat, where you can join the locals and try the best barbecue seafood or meat with some local beer and homemade Vietnamese rice wine.

We had a very nice and very informative evening with Gracie on our street food tour, which we can really recommend to you because you get to know places outside of District 1 and are well fed in real food stalls. We can 100% recommend this tour - definitely bring plenty of appetite

We were a group of 13 from New York and one from Texas. This tour was great and our guides Tony, Gracie & Billy make a great team and are very competent & informative. They take you on an authentic street & restaurant food tour of real Vietnam. They educated us on tradition and culture which we enjoyed with our taste buds. Do not eat before this tour. Keep your palette, mind, ears and mouth open. Indulge in everything Saigon has to offer. Try everything. Tony, Gracie & Billy will not disappoint you. They are very passionate about what they do and we appreciated our time with them. It was also good to see 3 young people (early 20's) doing something they truly enjoy. Thank you & hope to see you again next year. Yes we all agreed we would repeat the tour, we gotta eat, lol!

A place you can never go alone. Very tasty and lively place. I live in Bali, but there is no place like this. Eating around here is really fun! I was able to eat the same food at the same restaurant as the locals in Ho Chi Minh City. Or want to join another tour.
