Nghĩa Tân Market lets you have your fill of Vietnamese street food without breaking the bank. Join hungry natives as you devour tasty staples like clam porridge, mixed noodles, tofu pudding, and rice dumplings. There’s also an assortment of refreshing drinks available, perfect for hot summer days. It gets really crowded here during peak hours, so plan your trip accordingly.
Established in 1930, Che Bà Thìn is known for whipping up traditional chè (a sweet dessert soup). Indulge in a bowl of Che Ba Cot, made with glutinous rice, ginger, and brown sugar. Their Che Do Den (black beans, shredded coconut, and grass jelly) also comes highly recommended, especially during the summer. Plop down on one of the small chairs out front to savor your dessert alongside locals. It may be soup, but it will definitely cool you down while you’re embraced by the Vietnamese summer heat!
