Saigon off the beaten path: 5 must-try eateries Thumbnail

Saigon or Ho Chi Minh City has always been a famous destination among tourists. If it’s not your first time visiting Saigon, chances are, you’ve already visited and experienced everything. Well, how about we get off the beaten path in Saigon for once? Here are some recommendations on my best local experiences that you should try.


Beef Intestine Stew Tran Van On

Tucked away in an alley opposite to Tran Van On School, number 12 Nguyen Thanh Y, is the eatery spot that does not have an official name nor a proper roof or flooring, even though it has been in business for over 10 years.

Padma de Fleur

Whenever you are in doubt of place to have lunch, just walk your way to Padma de Fleur.

Sushi Rei

Dubbed the most expensive sushi parlor in Saigon, SUSHI Rei delivered great savory taste. Sushi here is made of the highest quality fish imported directly from Tsukiji fish market in Japan.

Banh Duc Phan Dang Luu

This tasty mouthwatering cake is called banh duc (bánh đúc). I think this place serves northern version. Although it is not as good as it was several years ago anymore, it is still arguably one of the best banh duc in town.

Espy Pizza

Have you ever tried American Pizza? No, not those Dominos or Pizza Hut, I dont think they can even be called Pizza. Do try ESPY Pizza.
