The Vietnamese love food. Can’t get enough of it. Day or night there’s a local spot sure to satisfy your cravings. From traditional street stalls, rolling carts, to high end modern Vietnamese restaurants, it’s a food and fruit lover’s paradise.
Street food here in Saigon is on another level. Get it fast, cheap, and delicious. Fast food chains like McDonalds or Burger King may dominate in other parts of the world, but they have a hard time competing here. Vietnamese “fast food” will be faster, cheaper, and healthier than its western counterpart. Food will even come to you. Relax in your pajamas and scroll through the various app platforms like Grab, Now, Vietnammm, Foody to have your pick of delicious street foods, meals from local family restaurants or larger domestic and international chains delivered to you.
If you are out and about meandering in traffic and feel thirsty or have a hankering for something sweet, salty, or crunchy, swing by on your motorbike, sometimes you don’t even have to hop off. The vendors will serve up your drink or snack in a neatly packaged takeaway container. Prefer to watch the world go by? You can sit street side on a low plastic stool tucked away in an alleyway gem, a bustling sidewalk with the noise of motorbikes passing by or find a quiet spot by the river. The urban sounds mixed with an array of aromas of charcoal grills means there’s something delicious ready for consumption. For a special treat, chill on one of the many rooftop decks and see the amazing skyline. The sounds, smells, and sights will bring all the urban ambience to complement your meal and cold beverage….
