Saigon city – Taste of the Night

 

Step off the path and travel the hidden alleys and streets of Saigon to sample foods that most people outside of Vietnam have never even dreamed of. Street food in Vietnam is incredibly diverse and we have designed this tour to include as many different types of foods as possible. From the subtle flavors of the North to the bold spicy flavours of Hue and the sweet and sour dishes of the south, our street food tour includes it all. In fact there are so many foods to try that every night features a different selection of foods to choose from. This tour not only highlights the exquisite and diverse street food of Vietnam but also celebrates the many customs that are shared during a meal. The making and sharing of a meal in Vietnam is seen as a central part of Vietnamese culture and it is our goal to give you an insider’s view of this special tradition.

This tour only takes place in the evening as this is not only the time when you will find most street vendors doing business but it also captures the energy and excitement of the night life in Vietnam.  Taste of the night is not only a food tour but also a great way to see parts of the city rarely visited by tourists. Tour incudes all of the food you can eat and also all drinks as well including local beer and, if you are feeling particularly adventurous, rice wine.  As long as you keep eating and drinking we will keep bringing you more.

Tour Details

Our tour starts when your tour guide meets you at a place specified by you. Each of our guests receives a friendly personal English speaking tour guide who is both licensed and personally trained by us. You will then be given safety instructions on how to ride on the back of a bike properly in order to ensure the safest experience.  The first part of our tour features three diverse street vendors where you will get to sample some of the many foods that they offer and learn about the history and cultural significance of each dish. Your guide will explain the many different sights that you will pass along the way as we travel to the different street vendors spread throughout Ho Chi Minh City.

We will then take you to a night market where you will have a chance to sample more foods and snacks as well as the many exotic fruits found in Vietnam.

Our tour ends with one the most popular Vietnamese food traditions; “The Street Barbeque”  Here you will get a chance to eat your fill of as many different kinds of foods as you can eat.  As long as you keep eating, we will keep ordering.

At the end of the night when you have eaten your fill we will drop you back off at your hotel.  Our tour is designed to give you a taste of as many different kinds of food as possible and is suitable for all travelers to Vietnam.

NOTES

  • This tour is extremely popular and in order to give our guests the best possible experience we limit our groups to no more than ten.  Although we try and accommodate all interested parties, it is best to reserve in advance in order to ensure your booking.

Hanoi Snake Village Tour

Le Mat is a small village located in Long Bien District in the capital city of Hanoi. The village has long been famous for a traditional job: catching snakes. It is rumored that even the kids there are skillful in doing the job, and that’s why there is no snakes left in the village and its surroundings. Nowadays, hundreds of families breed snakes to supply tens of snake restaurants in the village.

Not only famous for the talent of catching snakes, the village is also well-known for serving delicious dishes made from the reptiles. Just half an hour’s driving from the center of Hanoi, you will find yourself in Le Mat village where snake – restaurants have mushroomed.

Most of these dining venues are built on big plots of land surrounded by small farmer houses and rice fields. They are designed as rich houses of the old feudal time with wooden chairs and tables and precious potteries or porcelains.

The most popular snakes served in these restaurants are grass snakes and cobras (the cobra is ten times more expensive than grass snakes, of course), and they are all alive.

Guests can see how the chosen snake is prepared. Its heart and gall are poured into glasses of wine to drink. Other parts of the snake are cooked in different ways to make around ten dishes, for instance: grilled, fried, wrapped in leaves, rice soup, etc… Besides, snake alcohol is quite popular because it is believed to make ones healthier. Not many people think snakes are nice, but snake dishes are actually not so bad.

Tour Information

Our tour guide and car transfer you out to the Le Mat “snake village”, where you can experience the traditional village and sample their most famous specialty: Snake Meat!

They’re farmed for their meat. Snake Village gives you the chance to see or even hold some snakes and see them in the farm, before enjoying a feast of snake delicacies!

There are nearly 10 dishes to try, ranging from snake soup, snake meat softly fried, rolling fried, solid fried snake skin, meat covered leaves, snake heart and even snake soaked traditional medicine… A once in a lifetime experience! At the end of the trip, your guide will take you back to your hotel, the tour complete!

Hanoi Food Tasting Tours

Bia Hoi Hanoi (fresh beer)

Hanoi has been named one of the cheapest and best places to drink fresh beer in Asia by travel guides and journalists, thanks to its lively drinking culture.

Many tourists look forward to the chance to join local Hanoians and enjoy the city’s famous Bia Hoi (fresh beer) – a light-bodied pilsner without preservatives that is brewed and delivered daily to drinking places throughout the capital.

There are thousands of corner bars with tiny plastic stools set out on the sidewalk and small low tables laden with glasses of beer. Visitors should taste Vietnamese beer and learn how local people drink. “Mot, hai, ba…zo!!” (One, two, three …go!!) and “Tram phan tram!” (“100 percent” or “bottoms up”) are common chants that accompany a drinking session in these local establishments.Hanoi has become a magnet for tourists who enjoy drinking beer, which is readily available at local pavement shops as well as in luxurious bars.

“Bia Hoi Hanoi is one of things you should not miss when you come to Hanoi,” says Thomas, a foreign tourist who chooses Hanoi’s old quarter as his favourite place to imbibe a cool brew.

He says he likes Hanoi beer because it is very cheap and delicious. Another thing that amazes visitors is that the beer bars are mostly on the sidewalk where drinkers sometimes have to raise their voices over the din of motorbike traffic or breathe in the clouds of diesel exhaust belched over the plastic tables by a passing bus. “Sitting on the pavement, listening to the mixed sounds, drinking beer and just looking at what’s happening around me has become my habit during my time in Hanoi,” Thomas elaborates.

Tristan Parker, a London-based music journalist interested in writing about the arts and culture, says Hanoi’s impressive selection of beers include Larue, Saigon, Huda and Halida.

He says once after drinking several glasses of beer, a sudden downpour made sitting outside no longer an option, so he had to retreat back into the backpacker bar trail and ended up soaking up the atmosphere and more beer inside a colorful and enjoyable reggae bar.

“Bars are officially closed at 11.30pm, but many are not, as I have quickly found, “lock-ins” (some subtle, some less so) to be a rather common practice,” he adds.

Reporter Russ Juskalian has a lot of interesting experiences with beer in all three regions of Vietnam.

Tourists can see Bia Hoi restaurants almost every where, with knee-high plastic tables and semicicular chair placed close to the sidewalk, he says in an article published in The New York Times.

In his opinion, the best draught beer restaurants in Hanoi all serve “crisp, cool beer with a clean taste suggesting rice and an almost subliminal whisper of something like hops.”  Going through these places during the day, it is easy to start a conversation with local people but in the evening, they are too busy talking with each other so they pay no attention to tourists. Vendors also walk along the street offering skewers of roasted meat, dried cuttlefish, dumplings, and noodles that make great bar snacks.

He also provides a list of the freshest beer venues in the city on Hang Tre, Ngoc Ha, and Ta Hien streets. He writes that he spent a number of evenings wandering around the intersection of Ta Hien and Luong Ngoc Quyen Streets, also well-known as “Bia Hoi corner” where a lively lot of both foreigners and Vietnamese tend to gather.

After discovering the vibrant beer drinking culture in Hanoi, he says he is not in a hurry to pack his bags and head out to the airport.
