An Amazing Night Saigon Food Tour by Motorbike
Saigon night was so cool and nice that it was a perfect choice to join a Night Saigon Food Tour by Motorbike with these amazing local guides. As you can see in the photo, we looked like close friends and they just came to drive us around the city to eat together. That was the first glance at our motorbike tour.
Chicken is popular in our country but quail is new to us. We had enjoyed fried quail with butter in Vietnamese style. They eat fried quail with knotgrass, cucumber, and pickled kohlrabi. The fried quail is eaten with a mix of salt, black pepper, and cumquat juice. Because the fried quail with butter is a little greasy so that it’s great to combine the sour and smelling cumquat juice with this food. Plain Vietnamese bread which is crispy outside, tender and airy inside are served with a very special dark brown sauce which won my heart. An add was a glass of iced sugar cane juice. All made the meal perfect. As you can see in the photo, the food stall where we ate was very crowded with people. We felt like locals while eating and looking around, listening to they were chatting, cheering…
We were learning about snail eating in Saigon with some snail dishes and beer. They served us Steamed Clams with Lemon Grass, Stir-fried Mud-creeper with Coconut Cream. I couldn’t imagine that Snail was extremely delicious. It would be a big miss if you don’t eat Snail in Ho Chi Minh city.
The last stop was a place where we ate some desserts such as Vietnamese Sweet Soup, Flan Cake, Coconut Jelly. They mixed many kinds of jellies, seeds, and fruits with coconut cream and ice to make an exotic dessert I’d ever tasted. The coconut jelly is made from coconut water and coconut cream inside the peeled coconut. The flan cake is tender, creamy and eaten with black coffee.
