Hungry? Good. Buckle up. Youre in for one heckuva flavorous ride. Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnams booming commercial hub, is an undisputed street food capital and, as such, its practically one big, heaving eating opportunity. Zingy with herbs, salty with the smack of fish sauce, brimming with the goodness of vibrant produce and enlivened with notes of coconut, spice, smoke, lime and chilli, food here has crunch and flavour in spades. The only thing better than filing up on HCMCs seductive fare? Washing it down with local coffee, poured over ice and sweetened with gobs of sticky-sweet condensed milk. To tackle all this, you need a dining primer. Let Ho Chi Minh City In 12 Dishes show you what to eat, as well as where to eat, in this most tantalising of destinations. Profiling the city's defining dishes and best food experiences, Ho Chi Minh City In 12 Dishes will appeal to travellers who want to cut straight to the chase, gastronomically speaking. And isnt that everyone? Pho, banh mi, banh xeo, che and barbecue are among the essential 12 dishes showcased, although this nifty book goes way beyond these. You'll find info on HCMC's other soup noodles, advice on what to eat in frantic Cholon, where to get a stellar coffee and how to identify the myriad fresh herbs that are so freely strewn about. Addresses are in Vietnamese for ease of travel, and everything is sumptuously photographed, so you know exactly what you're aiming for. Designed to provide a starting point and bolster confidence, Ho Chi Minh City In 12 Dishes will have you eating like a local, in no time at all.
