Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) food trail- dinner (part 3)

Finally gotten around to write about our adventurous dinners at Saigon!

Ramen Bar Suzuki HCMC

8/5 Lê Thánh Tôn, Bến Nghé, Quận 1, Hồ Chí Minh
093 781 45 69

Very flavoursome ramen with thick soup. But the flavours are heavier comparing to those in Japan. Go early to try out their limited edition ramens at only 10 servings per day.


tầng hầm khu B, công viên 23/9, 4 Phạm Ngũ Lão, Phường Phạm Ngũ Lão, Quận 1, Hồ Chí Minh
090 377 08 36

Great for big groups because it's a big food court. Price is pretty average and taste was the more internationally acceptable.

5KU Station

29 Thái Văn Lung, Bến Nghé, Quận 1, Hồ Chí Minh
090 777 54 87

Great BBQ selection, marinated well and DIY using a cute charcoal grill! Be there early before 7pm because people literally queue for a table. But everything there was spicy, including their fried noodles.

Lý Club Saigon

143 Nam Kỳ Khởi Nghĩa, phường 6, Quận 3, Hồ Chí Minh
028 3930 5588

Where we enjoyed the evening during Victor and Shin Yi's wedding dinner. Fine dining concept with fresh ingredients. Great atmosphere and children friendly too.

Ốc Oanh
534 Vĩnh Khánh, Phường 8, Quận 4, Hồ Chí Minh, Vietnam
+84 98 399 49 39

Very local seafood eatery. Will advise to come in slightly big groups because it's a fairly chaotic area. Cheap though. Eat seafood only and don't order anything else.

This is how local it gets. Everyone sits on low chairs.

Bep Me In

136/9 Lê Thánh Tôn, Phường Bến Thành, Quận 1, Hồ Chí Minh 700000, Vietnam
+84 28 3824 4666

Authentic Vietnamese dishes. Serving is not huge and their fish soup really gave a big kick of flavors. Very different from Chinese cooking. And siew mai at Saigon is not a type of dimsum! It's a flour/meat ball cooked in tomato based gravy and taken with steamed French baguette.

Saigon has such a great variety of cuisine to suit every traveler's taste buds. Hope my posts have given you some guide as to what to try out during your trip. Bon appetit!
