There are few better places to enjoy the irresistible tastes of Vietnam than Ho Chi Minh City. With everything from fresh 'pho' (Vietnamese noodle soup) on the street to world-class fine dining restaurants, a trip to Ho Chi Minh City promises to be an unforgettable culinary experience.
Finding a great bowl of pho is not always easy, particularly for tourists who have no idea where to start. If you happen to find yourself in District 3, visit a pho restaurant by the name of Pho Anh. With arguably the best pho in Saigon and prices that don't exceed $2, it's hard to go wrong here. You can also find some great pho inside the Ben Thanh markets in District 1. Choosing a vendor where lots of locals are eating is usually a safe bet.
If it's fine dining you seek, look no further than La Villa French Restaurant in District 2. You'll be personally greeted by the chef upon arrival, before sitting down to one of the most amazing meals of your life. You'll appreciate a few little surprises such as tasters between courses and lemon liqeur after your meal. This is probably not the place to go, however, if you're on a tight budget.
