There are a few things to consider when looking for street food in Vietnam, such as the type of food you’re looking for and where you’re located. Vpopwire recommends trying out local specialty foods in different areas of the country, like Hue for Vietnamese coffee and ice cream, Ho Chi Minh City for bun cha (a type of Vietnamese noodle soup), and Da Nang for banh mi (a type of Vietnamese sandwich).

Great tips! I definitely agree that the best way to find the best street food is to ask locals for recommendations. I also think it’s important to look for places that are busy and have a lot of customers, as this is usually a good indicator of the quality of the food.

I know a lot of people love their meat and fishy dishes but I have had some of the best vegetarian dishes in Vietnam. They are amazing. All through street vendors too. I would love an article that focuses on vegetarian and vegan places. I am not either but I like to limit my meat and fish consumption.

I love street food! When I was in Vietnam, I had the most amazing bánh mi sandwiches at a little restaurant that my husband’s friend recommended. We also stopped by a roadside stand and got some grilled squid on a stick. It was so good!

Have you ever been to Singapore? They have some of the best street food around!
