Greet your guide and fellow foodies in central Ho Chi Minh City and head straight for the street stalls for squid soup (chao muc) and barbecued pork (xa xui). Sample a street food called banh bo banh tieu (a bit like a savory doughnut) and then learn how Cantonese, Teochew, and Hakka Chinese migrated to Ho Chi Minh City.
After a classic Vietnamese coffee served local style, discover that Chinese influence as you dine on local dim sum, spring rolls and barbecued beef meatballs.
No Ho Chi Minh City food tour would be complete without an ice-cold beer, so your tour will end at a beer stall, beer in hand. Your guide will be glad to provide tips for exploring further or just help you get a taxi back to your accommodation.
