Before going to Saigon, I knew relatively little about Vietnamese food.I was overwhelmed with the response, and received many local suggestions for everything from restaurants to street food stalls to eat at within the city, and also many favorite dishes to try. When I landed in Saigon, I had my notes compiled with info on what to eat and where, and I was eager to spend as little time in my hotel as possible, and as much time on the streets eating and enjoying Saigon.Thank you all for your incredible Vietnamese food suggestions.It turned out to be one of the most memorable food trips I’ve had in a long time, and my wife and I took photos and videos of almost everything that went into our stomachs.With this easy guide, I hope you’ll be able to taste, enjoy, and have some incredible food experiences when you’re in Saigon, Vietnam too.The following guide, featuring 25 Vietnamese dishes to eat in Saigon, is a result of your kind tips and recommendations, kilometers of walking around and sweating, and a month of eating food that I’ll never forget!
