SAIGON’S FAMOUS FOOD – Vietnam Food Tour – Best Banh Mi

Giải Trí

We tried 5 of Saigon’s Famous Food items during a full day Vietnam food tour! We found the best Banh Mi sandwich in the city and checked out Anthony Bourdain’s favorite restaurant in Ho Chi Minh city for Banh Xeo. We snuck in an exotic food in Vietnam towards the end, so make sure you watch all the way through!

To fuel up, we got an Egg Coffee or Cà Phê Trứng. During the milk shortage, Vietnamese adapted to whip an entire egg yolk into their coffee for dairy and texture. Vietnamese egg coffee is served with sweetened condensed milk and nutmeg. It reminded me of an egg nog latte. Needless to say, it was incredible.

Our first food stop on the Vietnam food tour was to find the best banh mi in Saigon. We went to a Mark Wiens recommended spot and were NOT impressed, so we headed down the street to the famous Banh Mi Huynh Hoa. Of course, being one of Saigon’s famous food items we had to stand in a line to get our Banh Mi. Thank goodness we waited because this was the best sandwich I’ve ever eaten in my entire life! No joke. If you are looking for the best food in Saigon, this should be your absolute first stop.

Next up I wanted to try Banh Xeo. What better place to try it than the one made famous by Anthony Bourdain in Vietnam: Banh Xeo 46A. This place was located in district 3 Ho Chi Minh city and although it’s quite the tourist destination now, it was only half full mixed with both locals and tourists. If you’re wondering what to eat in Ho Chi Minh city, Banh Xeo will be on every local foodies list for you to try. It’s a thin rice flour pancake or crepe stuffed with prawns, bean sprouts and garlic. It was absolutely delicious!

At this point of our food tour Saigon I’m starting to get pretty full… but everyone says the best Vietnamese food in Saigon is, you guessed it, Pho. We headed to the famous Vietnamese food Pho institution called Pho Hoa Pasteur for a bowl of raw beef pho noodles. This wasn’t the Pho place I had in mind, but it was right around the corner in District 3 so I thought we’d give it a try. I was not overly impressed with the soup and I needed to put a lot of condiments in the bowl to make it flavorful. Pho is typically a street food in Vietnam and I felt that the steeper price of 70K dong for a bowl reflected the fact that we were in a restaurant vs. a street food stall. Pho Hoa Pasteur also has chain establishments in the US, however this is the only location in Ho Chi Minh city.

Last but not least for the best Vietnamese food in Saigon was an exotic choice: Snails! I tried eating snails in Vietnam for the first time because I couldn’t find live coconut worms. I wanted to eat live coconut worms and be a little more adventurous for you guys but the government is cracking down on the distribution of coconut worms, making it illegal. So, I settled for snails. First were sea snails fried in chili and salt which was a little overcooked but still great in flavor. Second was a Mekong Delta river sucking snail which was horrifying! The snail itself was green and honestly tasted like you were eating a a dirty piece of swamp water. You guys know that I love eating exotic foods but this sucking snail was just gross!

I know we missed A LOT of the best food in Ho Chi Minh city but hey, my stomach can only fit so much. We will be eating many more Vietnamese foods and trying street food in Vietnam throughout our other Vietnam travel vlog episodes, so leave your suggestions below! If you need to know in Vietnam where to eat then I can highly suggest Banh Mi Huynh Hoa and Banh Xeo 46A. The others were just okay. That’s it for our Saigon famous food tour… we hope you enjoyed!

  1. Try Saigon kitchen in North Hobart you pay 5 times as much but the variety and choose of flavours is the best. I normally get crispy pork with crackling a few pieces of spicy fried chicken and the special fried rice it last a day or or 2 for 2 people and cost $50.

  8. I’ve went to Vietnamese when I was 5 a few times but don’t remember much but when I went this past summer it brought back so much MEMORIES and amazing foods, but the beef leaf roll is the best you have to try them it’s this grape leaf (I think) wrapped around beef or a type of meat and pan fried or grilled. ITS SO GOOOD

  9. How are you able to eat raw vegetables without having a stomach issue? We leave for Vietnam in a few weeks and I am very nervous about eating foods that aren't cooked!

  10. i am vietnam and if you would a chance come to my country again please try 'pho tau bay'….it's orginated the last periods from the French era… or you can get somewhere as mountains area and enjoy a deepest food that most vietnamese had never tried it before…i hope you can come back a gain ..^^^

  11. Omg me and my boyfriend love that banh mi place, also legit the best sandwich I’ve ever had. We went there 3x in a week

  12. Vietnamese cuisine is just so good that words alone cannot be used to describe it. My favorite dishes are just simply Banh Mi and Pho Bo.
