Ho Chi Minh Restaurants

Ho Chi Minh City's restaurants are among the city's strongest selling points. From sidewalk feasts eaten on steel tables while perched on Lilliputian plastic stools to palatial restaurants purveying everything from fusion creations to classic cuisines such as Italian and French, this is truly a foodie's paradise. Of course, for many visitors it is the indigenous manna that exerts the strongest pull and you won't need to strive overly hard to eat like a local. Street stalls are the most affordable, and perhaps the most authentic way, of delving into the city's wonderful world of food. The best places rarely serve more than one dish meaning that no attention is diverted for extraneous non-necessities. Among the names to look out for are bun thit nuong (rice vermicelli with barbecued pork and salad), cha gio (spring rolls), mi vit tiem (braised duck with egg noodles in broth) and, of course, Vietnam's nominal national dish pho bo (rice noodle soup with beef). There are many, many more! Unmissable as the street stalls are, they don't lend themselves to a particularly lengthy or intimate eating experience. For that, you'll need to head to one of the city's innumerable quans (eating houses) or nha hangs (restaurants). Most of the former sell top-notch Vietnamese food to a local audience while the latter tend to be more upmarket and encompass the foreign cuisines at large in the city, which include Japanese, Korean, Singaporean, Brazilian, Thai, Turkish and a phalanx of others.
