Greet your guide and group of fellow food lovers at Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts Museum.
Kick off your tour at some nearby street stalls where you can try local appetizers such as chao muc (a dry squid porridge) and xa xui (Cantonese barbecued pork).
Continue on to the corner of Nguyen Cong Tru and Calmette, and taste a unique street food called banh bo banh tieu.
Afterward, head to an area popular for its Saigonese coffee. See why the locals all are about this particular cup of joe before moving on to sample ha cao (Chinese-style dim-sum), bo bia (a Saigonese spring roll) and bo cuon mo chai (barbecued beef meatballs).
End your tour with a Vietnamese fried banana for dessert and a Saigon beer. Then, bid your guide and group farewell in this bustling location and choose to continue exploring or take a taxi back to your accommodation.
