Snails fresh off the grill, bowls of fresh dumplings, late-night goat curry, rotten fish soup, and ice cream, ice cream everywhere! Did you think Vietnamese food is just pho? Theres some amazing pho here in Saigon, but thats not even the beginningMoreSnails fresh off the grill, bowls of fresh dumplings, late-night goat curry, rotten fish soup, and ice cream, ice cream everywhere! Did you think Vietnamese food is just pho? Theres some amazing pho here in Saigon, but thats not even the beginning of good eating here! Stay away from the bland, overpriced tourist traps, and follow the trail of in-the-know, food-obsessed Saigonese people for the best Vietnamese meals ever.

Chow down big.This is the newly updated, 2015 edition of Eat Saigon, the insiders guide to eating like a real Saigonese local. This book guides you through twenty Saigonese food categories, and tell you where in-the-know Saigonese people find those foods. Want some grilled pork chops? Or crab and snail soup? Or durian smoothies? Or even Vietnamese microbreweries that have never seen any tourists?

Its all in here. Youll be welcomed at each of these places, and even if you dont speak a word of Vietnamese, I guarantee youll be able to make sense of things.No matter what anyone told you, $10 USD is not a reasonable price for a meal in Saigon!

Youre being ripped off! And your $10 meal probably has smaller portions and lower quality than my $2 meal. And no matter what any foreign travel writer told you, Ngon is not a good Vietnamese restaurant, and Pho 24 is not a good place for pho! Let me show you some much, much better alternatives.The restaurants I recommend in this book are primarily near the center of the city, easy for you to access, and serve meals costing around 50,000 dong ($2.34 USD). Theyre the favorites of native Saigonese people like me. You can easily reach them by walking or taking a Vinasun taxi.

Youll get by without speaking any Vietnamese -- not just because the language of hungry is universal, but also because restaurant staff do speak some basic English, and this book includes Vietnamese phrases you might use in restaurants.The restaurants I recommend have lots of local business already, and dont need to court tourists or guidebook writers.

So they dont appear in other guidebooks. In fact, almost all of the restaurants appearing on Tripadvisor or in Lonely Planet are exclusively tourist restaurants, and not only do Vietnamese people not go to them, but Vietnamese people have never even heard of them, unless they work there. So who (or whom) are you going to trust? Millions of Saigonese locals, or some foreign travel writer who just dropped out of the sky? Yes, I thought that would be your answer.Get ready for steaming hot chicken pho.

And a dim sum emporium, with Cantonese opera performances every morning, and zero tourists. Oh, oh, and theres always Cambodian pork noodles... ahhhhh!Get over here already. Eat Saigon!
