🕞 15:00 – 3:00 (varies)  |   📍 Vĩnh Khánh, Phường 8, Quận 4

Seafood Saigon

The Disneyland of seafood, BBQ, cheap sushi,  and much more, this food paradise is nestled in the beating heart of district 4. Often considered, for good reason, to be the best street food neighborhood in the city, there are endless venues to explore. To start, though, it’s all about seafood. This street is bustling with hungry foodies and loud cooks yelling at each other over steaming hot pots and grills.  Vĩnh Khánh street has an astonishing variety of food, mostly centered around snails and shellfish, known in Vietnamese as “Ốc” . We recommend you walk up and down to best enjoy the sights and smells of still-barbecuing octopus, shellfish,  pork ribs, hot pots, and more delights. This is our guide to what we consider to be the indisputably best food street in Ho Chi Minh City.

NOTE: Address numbers on this street are irrelevant and mostly useless, so for best results please find your way to the street and navigate by the numbers painted on each tree. We recommend getting dropped off at the bottom of the street and simply making your way up, taking in the smells and sights of each place as you make your final judgement.
