Numerous street food outlets make Ho Chi Minh city become one of the greatest cuisine exhibitions in Vietnam. Thousands of street-side foodies daily join delicious and cheap food together along the city’s sidewalks. Here are the next 6 best food street quarters in Ho Chi Minh city that Viaje has carefully chosen!
14. CO GIANG STREET:
Although Co Giang Street is much quieter than Phạm Ngu Lao, Bui Vien and Đe Tham streets where bars, western restaurants and mini-marts shine the whole district, the street is still commonly chosen by many travellers who want to find something more ‘authentic’, more ‘Vietnamese’ existing in Saigon. The intersection of Co Giang and Đe Tham streets is the brightest area of the street especially in the evenings when bright fluorescent light bulbs illuminating streetside barbeques are turned on, colorful street dishes give off their scented cooking smoke in the air.
If crossing Quan 79 and Hoang Yen (121 Co Giang street) on Co Giang street, do not forget to try delicious hu tieu xao and bo la lot.
15. TRAN KHAC CHAN STREET:
In the space of a couple hundred-metre pathway on Tran Khac Chan street, there are at least 50 food outlets laid everyday waiting for visitors to try.
There are many delicious dishes to try in this street such as: banh canh cua at 87 Tran Khac Chan, nuoc ep buoi (freshly squeezed pomelo juice) at 114 Tran Khac Chan, banh xeo at the corner of Tran Khac Chan and Tran Khanh Du.
16. NGUYEN THUONG HIEN STREET:
Nguyen Thuong Hien is a straight and narrow street in the northeast of District 1. Coming to Nguyen Thuong Hien at night, you will have an opportunity to see hundreds of people sitting along the sidewalk, immersing in shellfish, chatting, or singing together with many empty beer cans under their tables.
The soul of Nguyen Thuong Hien street is the section between Nguyen Dinh Chieu and Vo Van Tan. It will be a memorable experience to try snails and shellfish at A Soi (237-239 Nguyen Thuong Hien). Besides there are also oysters, clams, crab claws, sea snails and local beer for visitors to choose. Although Nguyen Thuong Hien is one of the most famous seafood street in Ho Chi Minh city, it’s also well-known for fruit juice. You can try this nutritious dish, let find it in the intersection with Nguyen Dinh Chieu and with Nguyen Thi Minh Khai such as Phat Dat at 125 Nguyen Thuong Hien and 488 Nguyen Thi Minh Khai Street, which about 5-10 walk from the west of Nguyen Thuong Hien.
