Our talented guide with the motorbike picks you up at your hotel (or any location requested by you). After a short riding instruction and program introduction, we hop on the motorbike. The guide makes sure you are ok on the motorbike before weaving around the main streets and narrow alleyways to see the city.
1st stop: We stop at over 50-year-old Banh cuon Hai Nam – the oldest and most famous places to eat Stuffed Vietnamese pancake. The guide shows you how the skillful cook steam the thin cake on the large flat cloth.
2nd stop: Drive to a small street food stall which is over 20 years old to learn how they wrap and grill one of top Saigon street foods – Grilled banana & sticky rice in banana leaves.
3rd stop: It is a big chance to stop at Cheo Leo cafe – an 80-year coffee shop hidden in an alley and famous for its distinct “Vot” coffee. There you sit around a table, take a rest, enjoy the drink and chat leisurely with the guide as a friend like locals. You also learn how to make a cup of “Vot” coffee and interact with the nice owner of the coffee shop.
4th stop: Stopping at a long-standing Broken rice restaurant, we see how they grill pork on charcoal, buy a portion of Broken rice and eat at the next stop. Broken rice should not be missed on a Saigon food tour because it is a specialty food of the city. It is a perfect blend of the broken rice, grilled pork, cucumber, pickles, green onion oil, sweet and sour fish sauce dip.
5th stop: We stop to eat again 🙂 at an over 20-year-old restaurant known as Top 5 Places to eat Vietnamese pancake in Saigon. The guide shows you how the cook makes thin, large, and crispy pancakes skillfully, how to wrap the cake in vegetables and eat.
6th stop: Next, we head to a non-touristic dessert stall where you can choose to eat an amazing Saigon dessert – Smooth, tender, lightly sweet and greasy Flan cake topped with shaved ice and Vietnamese coffee.
Lastly, the guide returns you to your hotel. It is time to say goodbye, tour ends but memories last forever.
