We spent three nights in Ho Chi Minh in District 1, in the Little Tokyo area. There were a lot of restaurants and coffee shops nearby, we had some pretty good meals. I was in search of the best Pho in Vietnam, I didn’t find it here though.
Pho 79 in Garden Grove, California, is the best pho I’ve had, and I’ve had a lot of Pho, all over the US and now in Vietnam. After reading reviews and watching YouTube, I decided to try Pho 24 as our first meal, it was so disappointing, not good at all. We then tried Pho 2000 a couple hours later, this was better, but still not that good. My search wasn’t going well, so the next day we went to the Lunch Lady who was made famous by Anthony Bourdain. It was good, but we got the tourist prices, about double what I calculated it should be. But she’s a nice lady, Chris bought her cookbook for $3 USD, so we figured we’ll help support her family and not argue.
We then went to a coffee shop around the corner so I could work up an appetite to try Pho Phuong which was better than the previous day, but still not close to Pho 79.
We splurged on a really nice dinner at Xu Restaurant, it got very good Trip Advisor reviews but ended up costing about $250 USD for 4 of us. It was a great meal, small bites though but filling enough.
We took a tour from Saigon Free Walking Tours, it was nice to have the two students show us around the city and not feel totally lost for once. They took us to the Cong Caphe where Chris had his favorite coffee drink, then the War Remnants Museum which was interesting.
We had another good dinner at Chi Hoa which was a block from our hotel. I was about to give up on my Pho search but decided to try Pho Le which was recommended by Kyle Le. This was our best Pho so far, very good, but still not the best I’ve had.
The next morning we left for Hanoi, I think we spent just the right amount of time in Ho Chi Minh.
