Now there are heaps of things that you absolutely must eat when in Ho Chi MInh City, Vietnam. I’ve compiled a list of things that I really liked – but this list is definitely not exhaustive, and I am in no way an expert on this so PLEASE feel free to add to it. i’d appreciate mate

In order of food that appeared in the video:

1. Pho

Phở or pho is a Vietnamese soup consisting of broth, rice noodles, herbs, and meat – usually beef, sometimes chicken. Pho is a popular street food in Vietnam and served in restaurants around the world.

2. Bo Kho
Bo Kho is a classic Vietnamese Dish – although not as well known as pho, it is very much loved. It is a Vietnamese Beef stew very similar to your typical beef pot stews, only difference is there are fragrant flavours of lemon grass, star anise and cinnamon.

3. Bò Né
o ne is Vietnam’s version of steak and eggs served with a dollop of pate

4. Cơm tấm (broken rice)
Cơm tấm, or broken rice, is a Vietnamese dish made from rice with fractured rice grains. One of my favourites – i love rice ok

5. Pork bánh mì
Bánh mì or banhmi is the Vietnamese word for bread. In Vietnamese cuisine, it also refers to a type of baguette which is often split lengthwise and filled with various savory ingredients as a sandwich and served as a meal.

6. hu tieu nam vang
hu tieu nam vang essentially translates to phnom penh noodles. it has Cambodian and Chinese flavours but is a very popular noodle dish in Vietnam. I loved it so much i went there multiple times during my time in Ho Chi Minh City. Partly because it was so dang delicious, but also because this was one of the few stores i could access without crossing any roads. so….

7. Vietnamese Coffee
Need i say more?

8. Rice Paper Rolls
Rice paper rounds are a staple of Vietnamese cuisine. Made from rice starch, they’re a healthier alternative to deep-fried spring rolls. lol not that i would care whether it’s healthier or not – i just like it because its delicious

9. Vietnamese Street Snack Food
Check out my video that i’ve linked above mate

Hope you enjoyed this video!

  1. What, no Banh Xeo!!!….this is a crispy Vietnamese pancake filled with savory fillings, like prawns and other meats, it can be eaten by itself or cut up and wrapped in lettuce or perilla leaves along some coriander, basil or vietnamese mint leaves and dipped in a sauce, usually fish sauce (this is a traditional Southern Vietnamese dish)….So yummy!!! The other Vietnamese dish you did not have on your list that thought you might have tried is Bun Bo Hue, which is a spicy beef noodle soup (originally from Hue in Central Vietnam), again so yummy…the spice is usually just enough to give a little kick without being too spicy, unless you are like me and like really spicy food and add some extra chilli oil and/ or fresh chili. Also just for further information Pho, which you included in your video is a typically Northern Vietnamese dish even though it is served all through Vietnam now days.

  2. love all your videos 🙂
    my flights booked for Singapore and Vietnam ,
    i'm vegetarian ,how hard will it be to find food ?
    i can't live on just dessert and coffee lol

  3. I really like your videos and the aura you create around you. I found your channel before my trip to Australia (I was looking for cheap Chinese/Asian restaurants recommendations). The trip is over, but I can't stop watching your videos. If you're interested in making a comprehensive review Dixon House food court sometime, that would be great! (One of the shops from there featured in your previous video, but there're many more.) And you should also go to Taiwan! You can watch some Luke Martin's videos from there for inspiration 🙂

  4. Love me some broken rice! I can see how Banh mi is a must. This second soup is also new to us. Those rice paper rolls look beautiful. Street food also a must. Awesome list, Janice!

  5. Pho! Hahaha Yay, first! I feel your pain about the hair. It's the same with me when we visit hot weather places. Didn't know about this beef stew but looks beautiful. You're brave… not sure we would just point at menu items. Looks beautiful though.

  6. Actually it's Bò Kho. Kho is a way of stewing, or braising is a better word. Khô is dried, like beef jerky is khô bò, bò is cow/beef.
    All of the food you mentioned are all famous here, glad that you got the chance to try all of them. I personally like eating Bò kho with the noodles from Phnom Penh noodles soup. You make the noodles a little bit softer than normal and it absorbs the broth really well. Yummy 😋😋

  7. So much great food 😍 we needa go ho chi Minh city too. Most likely next year I think. Your 10th item on the list was amusing too the ants 😂👍 the vietnamese pizza looked interesting. One of my favorite things is definitely the broken rice with pork chop I'm a fan tong like you hahaha.

  8. I’m going to Ho Chi Minh city Vietnam in about 1-3 weeks and I’m so excited to eat the food !😁🇻🇳 love the video btw👍🏻

  9. Wowww the Bo Ne is something we never try before! Looks so yummm 😍😍😍
    Agree it would be perfect if it’s with rice instead of baguettes.
    Hahaha live ants on the baguettes, extra protein! 😂
