Full description
Benefit from pick-up at your hotel in selected areas of Ho Chi Minh City, and then head by taxi to a local district which is known as a street food paradise to taste authentic banh xeo and banh khot (rice pancakes) away from the tourist crowds. Stroll along a street known for its barbecue seafood vendors and head to a local-favorite restaurant to taste the best bo la lot" (beef in wild betel leaves). Sample a tasty Bot Chien, pan-fried rice cakes with egg and spring onions which is cooked by a local chef with over 25 years experience, and then quench your thirst with a sugar cane juice mixed with a little orange. Continue your food adventure with an authentic banh mi (sandwich) and experience the perfect fusion of 4 delicious flavors with one bite! Walk into the old apartments of Nguyen Thien Thuat, where you can join the locals and try the best barbecue seafood or meat with some local beer and homemade Vietnamese rice wine.

We had a fun and interesting evening with J-Kay and Duong. The food was really good and definitely a lot (so make sure you keep some space in your stomach). Not only the food was nice, we also got a lot of history info and stories about the local life in HCM which made the tour even better. Definitely recommend the tour if you are in HCM & want to take a dip into the local life

My husband and I loved this food tour. It really takes you behind the scenes to the places and markets you would've never seen as an average tourist. We had Kitten as our guide, and she was lovely! Very sweet, knowledgeable and accommodating. If you really want to get a taste of Vietnam, behind the tourist scenes - then book this tour :)

I took this tour the first night I landed in Saigon with my bf and we were very lucky to have JK as our tour guide! Despite both being hangover and tired, JK energy kept us hooked and hyped throughout the tour. It’s like hanging out with your friend. The tour is also inclusive of taxi and food cost so you don’t need to worry about anything. So I ended up booking a private tour to Mekong with him and it was also fantastic! Love this tour and would highly recommend it to everyone :)
