BEST Pho! TRADITIONAL Noodle Tour of Saigon Vietnam

  • Published on Dec 31, 2017
  • I've been wanting to travel to Vietnam for years! My first day in Saigon( Ho Chi Minh City) I had to go for a bowl of Pho! The BEST I've ever had! I then went to explore the traditional Vietnamese noodle soup scene of Saigon where I tried Crab Noodles, Bún Bò Huế and bunch of other traditional noodles.
    Lcoation 1: Pho Quynh - Best pho for me, but I didn't know a better one was yet to come.
    Location 2: Banh Canh Cua - Just the GREATEST, MUST TRY!
    Location 3: Bun Thit Nuong - got nothing to compare with but very solid and LOVED the pork
    Location 4: Bún Bò Huế Nhung yes a thousand times yes!
    Location: Quán ăn - Huế tại 19 Trần Quốc Toản, P. 8, Quận 3, Hồ Chí Minh
    Location 5: Sadec Quan - Super refreshing noodles, must try if you love coconut and refreshingness
    Location 6: Pho Phu Vuong - OMG you gotta eat this!

    Thank you. I have visited this place, Quanch Pho at Ho Chi Minh. Really good. Try out the soup egg also. This city is now call Ho Chi Minh. Please don’t confuse everyone calling it Saigon.

    bruh that ain't 50:50. just saying! this is from someone who lives 15 minutes from that pho shop. there is also another shop about 3 mina away that serves pho as good as (or better to some), but for half the price. i know it's already cheap, but double price for aircon ain't worth it! and also because you titled the video TRADITIONAL, a little walk would have gone a long way mate!

I just wish I could afford to go to Saigon and have it like you did. My first stop would be at the last place you visited. Thanks for the video and I'm now a new subscriber.

    Mikey Chen. @6:43 - I saw your post sometime and something you need to be corrected. FYI, It's not crab noodle soup. It's Vietnamese udon (Banh Canh). You should have ask Brenda. She should know what they are. There should be plenty places that you can order in NY, San Jose, Little Saigon ... and Seattle when you move there.

    Mike, That's not coriander. It's Rice Paddy ( Limnophila aromatica), in the family of Plantaginaceae. In Asia it is growing wilde and it's commonly found in the rice paddy field.

    heheehe hilarious pronunciation... but any US citizen has it.
    And at the end, it is not "pho". It is Phở. It may sound difficult, but i think any english speaker should overcome the fear of diacritics so you can respect other languages.

    Mike. I replayed this video several times and I think you need to come back and make a whole video just for Pho (like what you did for Ramen). There are still many good Pho place in Saigon. And if you can, go to Hanoi, this is where Pho was born and the flavor is very unique compared to Southern pho!!!
