1. Saigon doesn’t have a specific specialty:

Saigon is a place where culinary specialties from across Vietnam converge. On the street, you can find classic dishes like Phở Hà Nội, bún bò Huế, mỳ Quảng and tasty snacks like bánh tráng trộn, chè khúc bạch and nem chua rán. Just by following a Saigonese, you can enjoy every kind of specialty without leaving the city.
