Foodie area in Ho Chi Minh City
5th March, 2013
Myself and a couple of friends are heading to Ho Chi Minh City and we are huge foodies. Are there any food tours that we can go on to get the best of the city? Thanks!

I don't have any specific recommendations, but have you checked out the TF blogs? From the menu at the top Blogs -> Vietnam, then scroll down to to see the categories on the left. There are a bunch under food: http://www.travelfish.org/blogs/vietnam/category/saigon/food-saigon/ You should find something of interest in here. Many are reviews of restaurants, but there are probably some that cover various food markets, etc.

To the North of Ben Thanh market are a number of food carts and local food spots. Don't know about any tours for that.

The best food in Saigon is not in a restaurant at all - it's the street food. Look at the older parts of Noodlepie

I've heard good things about the XO tour but you need to book in advance.

Hi! I'm joining XO Tour for my upcoming trip in April as well. But we decided to book the night tour as it seems more interesting and most likely easier to follow them to take a look of Saigon at night Probably can let you know the review if you are travelling after 6th May cause that's when I'll be back

My travel agent Flight Centre HK also suggested the XO Tour in Vietnam and said it was the best for foodies!
Is this the one: http://xotours.vn/Our_Tours/The_Foodie.html? Please do let us know how it goes! Since I am in Hong Kong, I can fly there anytime.

Then the food in Saigon must suck. Street food is practical and cheap. High end restaraunts, on the other hand, are suppose to serve high end cuisine.
