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.

Tony met us at hotel with Lyn (in training) we had a taxi to the first stop and the walk commenced from there. The street food was such an exciting experience, as we tried foods we would never have attempted. Thankyou. It was very good and interesting to find out about local Vietnamese cuisine and culture. They also went the extra mile all the way, and were lovely to talk to, great hosts, respectful but fun. I would trust them any time and recommend to all who would like this type of trip.

Best experience yet in Vietnam! Our guide Finn was the absolute best, so knowledgeable and helpful and just a joy to be around! All the food was incredible and its well worth the price for how much you get! Everything ran very smoothly, Finn came to pick us up at our hostel and then organised a taxi for us from there to the start of the walking tour and back again at the end. It was so nice to get the opportunity to eat with the locals and learn so much more about vietnamese culture. Thank you for an amazing time! Street Food Man really goes above and beyond on this tour!

We were told to come with empty stomachs and glad we did! Our guide J-Kay was amazing!! Super friendly and led us around some amazing food spots which we would have never found ourselves. His knowledge was top class and you can see he is very proud of his heritage and his people - it came through all night! Look out for the awesome surprise at the end - I will not spoil it. We highly recommend J-Kay and the tour. See you next time we are in HCMC! Greg and Cathy
