Food Lover's Guide to Ho Chi Minh City

Food Lover's Guide to Ho Chi Minh City

You'll find good food around every corner in Ho Chi Minh City, where the culinary scene serves as a reflection of the capital city's ever-evolving cosmopolitan landscape. There's everything from inexpensive food-cart fare to fine dining in the city's luxury hotels, and no matter your preference, you're sure to satisfy your appetite. Here are a few dishes and activities you won't want to miss.

Must-Try Dishes

Born from the fusion of French and Vietnamese influences, bahn mi has become one of the country's most iconic dishes and a must-eat for any visitor to Ho Chi Minh City. This sandwich, served on a baguette, comes piled with roast pork, pickled vegetables, cilantro, chilies, pate, and mayo. Flavors of fresh herbs abound in dishes like green papaya salad and spring rolls, while rice is a popular base for barbecued meats. Sticky rice, popular for breakfast, comes topped with bean paste and fried shallots or with yogurt.

Must-Do Experiences

  • Embark on a food tour by foot, bike, or motorbike to try the delicious dishes of Ho Chi Minh City's streets and markets.

  • Deepen your understanding of Southern Vietnamese cuisine in a cooking class, where you'll learn to create new dishes.

  • Combine a cooking lesson with visits to other top Ho Chi Minh City attractions, such as the Cu Chi Tunnels or Cai Be Floating Market.

  • Eat like a local while feasting on a made-from-scratch, 3-course meal in the home of a Vietnamese family.
