Join the Local Can Tho Street Food Tour and explore Cantho life through the food we eat. Learn more about our food and the culture of the Mekong-Delta. What will you experience+ A walk through some of the upcoming locations in Can Tho city+ Absolutely local street food+ Locally produced beer and freshly-made fruit drinks+ The Mekong city life through the eyes of a local and cultural stories on the corners we pass+ Interesting facts about the food we eat+ Meeting other international traveller and locals. Celebrate Mekong Street Food: ❶ We start the tour at a place where we get a deep fried fish tofu stick and beef snack balls (7.000VND). ❷ We continue to a place in the food street, where we eat Banh Cong (10.000 VND), a Can Tho traditional pie cake made from a mixture of green beans, little shrimp and minced pork, which is steamed and then deep fried in a flour dough. ❸ At the next location we try “Nem Nuong” - pork BBQ rolled up in rice paper with rice noodles, lettuce, thin banana slices, Asian basil, mint, pineapple, coriander, fresh herbs and leaves, that you dip in a yummy sweet-spicy sauce (18.000 VND/portion). ❸ If you are getting thirsty, do not worry. We will right away stop by a local pub and enjoy an extra-large jug of “Phong Dinh” beer (36.000 VND/2L), the locally produced beer named after the historic name of Can Tho city. ❺ Arriving at the riverside a friendly lady, known by the Can Tho youth since their childhood, “Di map” (Jie map), will make us the most yummy sticky rice (6.000 VND). ❻ We will end our evening excursion at a street cafe in the quay area with a fresh smoothie made from fruits of the delta (15.000 VND). Options: As we have dozens of locations and hundreds of street food stalls in the city, we can adapt the tour to the preferences of our daily groups. There is an option of a Vegetarian tour or an “Out of the ordinary tour” available where you can try rather strange food like grilled field mice, snakes, frogs or snails.Start: 6.30 pm daily. Place: 93 Mau Than Street, Xuan Khanh, Ninh Kieu in Can Tho. Price: Pay What You Like at the end of the tour.

I believe the Can Tho Food tour is only at night and meets at a hotel in Can Tho. It starts 6:30pm, lasts for a few hours, and is a walking tour so I don't think there is any transportation back to Saigon. I would recommend... More
