Ho Chi Minh City Travel Guide
Best Restaurants in Ho Chi Minh City
The flavours one experiences when dining out in Ho Chi Minh City
will linger on the palate long after you''ve finished eating.
Vietnamese cuisine makes use of the freshest ingredients, ensuring
a taste sensation every time. Dishes are anchored around herbs such
as lemongrass, mint, Vietnamese mint, long coriander and Thai basil
leaves with lean, healthy meat like pork, chicken, fish, and
various kinds of seafood. Fish sauce and soy sauce are used to
season dishes instead of salt.
Visitors will be able to enjoy a wide array of restaurants
specialising in cuisines from all over the globe peppered along the
streets of Ho Chi Minh City. With everything from French and
Italian to good old American burgers and fries, travellers will
find something to suit their taste.
Some of the best areas for dining out in the city are round the
Ben Thanh Market where some of the best local fare can be samples,
including dishes like mien ga (vermicelli, chicken, and mushrooms
in a broth-like soup) and the Vietnamese staple, pho (noodle soup).
Dine on a riverboat while you float along the Saigon or grab your
meal on the go from one of the city''s popular street vendors - the
choices are endless!
With local cane furniture and low lighting and three storeys to
choose from Lemongrass makes the perfect location for a romantic
dinner in Ho Chi Minh City. Its lunch menu's not bad either. This
eatery has been serving local Vietnamese fare to visitors and
locals for years and comes highly recommended. Serving healthy and
light dishes, the menu is varied, incorporating seasonal flavours
and ingredients and catering to all tastes. Try the soup or spring
rolls and the deep-fried prawn in coconut batter - delicious! Open
daily for lunch and dinner.
