Saigon Street Food by Night - Small Group Tour

Annie was a great guide with a great sense of humour. From a tiny cart in a busy street to a small hipster café at the top of a converted apartment building, she took me all over town. We even got a chance to watch the full moon rise over the city while eating freshly made Banh mi. ...Gemma A., – See more reviews

We all know Vietnam is an absolute legend when it comes to street food and if you want to make the most of your stay here, you'll want to head out with an in-the-know local to pick out the best of the best of Saigon's street food. Put your eating pants on and follow us!

Our Saigon food tour kicks off with a short walk from the Opera House to the Old Market, passing architecture that transports you back in time with glimpses of the city's past.

Don't be fooled by its name - the forty year old 'Old Market' isn't home to antiques. Instead, it's full of food! Dozens of street vendors tempt locals with beloved local favorites like fresh spring rolls, green papaya salad, and Vietnamese savory steamed rice cakes, just to name a few. Here, sample some authentic local appetizers, inhaling the spicy flavors of the street stalls, and watch as local life unfolds before your eyes in the heart of Saigon.

Make your way to Mong Bridge for a unique view of a intersection of life in Saigon: watching the flow of the river at sunset, the stream of traffic at rush hour, and the juxtaposition of historical periods played out in the architecture. Cool, relaxing, and perhaps even romantic, indulge in what just might be the most famous of Saigon's street food: banh mi! This really is classic Saigon, so eat it up - it doesn't get much better than this!

It wouldn't be a true local experience without enjoying coffee the way Saigonese coffee aficionados do on a daily basis. Head to a popular local hem of Saigon and within it is a gourmet coffee haven. We'll show you the local style of taking your coffee and you'll feel right at home!

Next up on our Saigon food adventure is another one of the city's iconic street food dishes: com tam. This dish is one of the most popular and preferred dishes by Southerners and you can find it everywhere from street stalls to fancy restaurants. What makes it so beloved is that the ingredients are so strikingly simple, yet the tastes and flavors are truly unforgettable.

From com tam we head for the Ben Thanh Night Market to pick up a Vietnamese che dessert; a sweet soup-pudding-beverage hybrid that's crazy popular with locals.

Cap off our Saigon street food tour with street beer! At this street beer stall we'll outfit you with a cold Saigon beer and the chance to mingle with locals. Your local guide will be happy to provide tips for exploring the area further or assist you in getting a taxi back to your accommodation.
