I did not spend a long period of time in HCMC, but I believe I managed to take in most of the city during my trip to Vietnam. One of my favourite thing about the city is that food is accessible everywhere. There are many small cafes along the road or little makeshift store that sells noodles or snacks. During my time there, I was never hungry.
One food item you have to try before leaving Vietnam is Banh Mi. It is a baguette sandwich with meat of your choice. Store vendors would stuff the baguette with either chicken, beef or pork with pickled vegetables and fresh herbs. It is affordable, delicious and filling! I had a chicken sandwich for dinner and I was stuffed through the night!
The food scene in Vietnam is vast. You could get thick ice coffee to refreshing coconut everywhere, in the market you could find a piping hot bowl of pho to fried bugs. You also can find international cuisines in the city. We chanced upon many Japanese and Korean restaurants, it is purely the city of food.
We decided to indulged to American BBQ on our last night in HCMC! We googled and researched and settled on a casual restaurant called Quan Ut Ut. They serve American BBQ, burgers and beer! Seems very casual and worth the eat! The meal costed less than 50USD!
By the end of our meal, we were too full to walk. It was that good! A great way to end my trip to HCMC!
And this concludes all the delightful eats in Ho Chi Minh City. I think I gained a little weight but, weight can be shed, so fret not and just eat on! The next part of the trip that I would love to share is the city itself. I walked for hours during this trip and seen many! So stay tune for the next part to view the bustling city of Vietnam! Till the next time, Tạm Biệt~! (Goodbye in Vietnamese)
