I want to eat all the local specialties but I’m really only familiar with Pho. What do I need to try?

Ho Chi Minh City is a culinary dream. The cuisine is versatile, authentic, and unlike anything you’ve tried before. While Pho is a delicious dish you must try, there are a number of other amazing meals you should know in order to eat like a local. 

The first is Com Tam, or broken rice. You will see signs for Com Tam littered all over town for the famous dish. It is comprised of fractured pieces of white rice served with a smoky flavored pork chop that is both salty and sweet. Don’t forget to pour some fish sauce over the top to complete the meal!

Another quintessential dish is Banh Mi. This famous sandwich is served on a baguette and topped with pickled vegetables and your favorite protein. A common order is pork, pickled vegetables, pate, butter, soy sauce, coriander, chilies, and hot peppers. Feel free to try other variations such as with an egg or different meat such as chicken!
