Street Food 101 – an evening introduction to street food

    A quick, fun and very tasty overview of Ho Chi Minh City’s best street food.

    Get a glimpse of local life as you sample a range of dishes in a little neighbourhood that’s been serving cheap and cheerful street food for nearly 30 years.

    During the tour, you’ll try everyday Vietnamese dishes, some with a little taste of France, some with a little taste of China. There’s even a little taste of Korea! We finish our eating adventures with Vietnamese dessert-in-a-glass.

    This tour is designed to give you the confidence to go out and try street food on your own once you’re released back into the wilds of Ho Chi Minh City.

    We’ll take you to and from the tour area by xe om (motorbike taxis). If you’re worried about riding on the back of a motorbike, we do have the scardey-cat option of taking a taxi. This requires a slightly earlier pickup (to navigate the peak hour traffic) and a small surcharge.

    (Minimum 3 hours, starting around 5.30pm, $45/VND1 million per person, maximum 8 people, small surcharge for pickups outside Districts 1 and 3.)
