Saigon Street Eats’ tour add-ons allow you to double-down on your Vietnam experience, with tasty snacks to take home, or craft beer to take on tour.

Our Pasteur Street Brewery craft beer packs let you sample three great made-in-Vietnam craft beers on the tour (so you don’t have to waste precious holiday hours tracking down their taproom).

Our souvenir snack packs allow you to stock up on lightweight gifts for friends and family back home without spending hours trawling through tourist-trap shops. (You could even just eat all the snacks yourself. There’s no rule saying you have to give these tasty bundles away!) Each souvenir snack packs all come with a super-stylish tote bag from Very Ngon Homewares.

You can choose any of these tour upgrades when you make a booking on our Book A Tour page.

Our souvenir snack packs are inspired by the Vietnamese tradition of buying food souvenirs when travelling, even if it’s only a couple of hours away from home. All the Saigon Street Eats team LOVE food souvenirs, and always stock up. However we’ve noticed that most of the stuff in the tourist shops downtown are seriously overpriced and, frankly, not that great. We know the good stuff in Ho Chi Minh City is in the supermarkets. But all the everyday supermarkets have moved out of the downtown area in recent years. We don’t want our groovy and adventurous customers to miss out on the good stuff, so we created the souvenir snack pack tour add-ons, in co-operation with our dear friends at Very Ngon Homewares.

We selected our favourite supermarket snacks for you, AND bundled them into a beautiful handmade Very Ngon (ngon = delicious) tote bag. All the snacks are sealed, so they shouldn’t create any problems for you at customs.

It’s the perfect package, really!

A note about the tote bag
The image on this bag is of Dong Khoi Street in downtown Saigon, snapped by a French photographer in the early 1900s. The street was then known as Rue Catinat, and the photo was taken just down the road from the Opera House, with the steeples of the Notre Dam Cathedral peeking out above the trees in the distance.

A note about the tote bag
The image on this bag is of Emperor Duy Tan, who inherited the throne from his father in 1907, aged seven. His reign lasted until 1916, when he was deposed and exiled to Reunion Island for his part in a plot to overthrow the French colonial administration. He died in a plane crash in central Africa in 1945, on his way home to Vietnam.


Craft Beer Pack

The talented folk behind Pasteur Street Brewery use American-style craft beer techniques and Vietnamese flavours to create an exciting range of beers that all nail the WOW-factor. These guys were the trail-blazers for Ho Chi Minh City’s burgeoning craft beer scene, and are a hit with locals, expats and visitors.

Saigon Street Eats loves Pasteur Street beers so much that we asked (very politely) if we could take them on our tours — and they said yes!

If you book one of our special beer upgrade packages, you’ll get to try Pasteur Street’s Passionfruit Wheat Beer, Jasmine IPA and Spice Island Saison.

In package one you’ll get three 500ml growlers (one of each variety listed above) for VND500,000. In package two you’ll get six 500ml growlers (two of each variety listed above) for VND960,000.

For true craft beer nerds, here are some fancy tasting notes provided by Pasteur Street Brewery:

Passionfruit Wheat Ale (4% ABV)

Locally-grown passionfruit is prepared using Pasteur Street’s top-secret method to infuse the flavour and aroma into their light-bodied American wheat ale. This craft beer has low bitterness and is served with the yeast still in the beer.

Jasmine IPA (6.5% ABV)

Pasteur Street IPA is an American style IPA with a light golden color, a bready malt flavour and a distinct aroma of citrus, pine and tropical fruits. This hop aroma is complemented by a clean, bitter finish and medium body.

Spice Island Saison (7.2% ABV)

Pasteur Street added some local ingredients to this traditional Belgian-style farmhouse beer: Phu Quoc black pepper; lemongrass; and ginger. The pepper gives the beer a spicy note, the lemongrass some sweetness and the ginger adds a very Asian twist.
