Popular Vietnamese street foods include cơm bình dân (‘meals for the people’, rice topped with an assortment of cooked and pickled meats and veggies), cơm tấm (broken rice with grilled pork), bún thịt nướng (noodles with barbecued pork), bánh mì (baguette stuffed with meats, pate, fresh herbs, chillies, and a fried egg), phở (beef or chicken noodle soup), and chả giò and gỏi cuốn (deep-fried and fresh spring rolls). Sinh tố, which literally means ‘vitamins’, is a fresh fruit smoothie made with crushed ice and fruits such as mangoes and bananas. You can find an abundance of food stalls serving these dishes along with some common favorites, the Pho, Banh Mi, Banh Xeo, and the like.
Ngon Restaurant, an open-air eatery on Pasteur Street in District 1, takes the proletarian concept of street food and serve it amidst relaxed colonial interiors. You can order an amazing range of authentic street delights at reasonable prices.
