Street foods is more than culinary in Saigon, it’s our culture.

Street vendors can be found in anywhere anytime in Saigon, even if a local food bloggers or gourmets are not able to know how many street vendors in Saigon are. A great number of them has sold their products for over two decades. Their daily routine is selling cheap but decent food at 10,000 – 20,000 each unit, however don’t judge a book by its cover, I used to know a crab soup vendor possessing a villa and taking care of two sons who are studying abroad.

Street food may be considered equivalence with fast food in a matter of time yet containing much less fat. Unless you are having a meal in district 1,  you don’t have to bargain. Just ask the price before eating anything or ask a young local who is eating in that vendor, they will give you the absolute price in English.
