42 Trương định – Ho Chi Minh City

Eat like a local can be intimidating, especially when you are not sure if you can order correctly, or how to order at all. Especially at a small street stall on the streets of Ho Chi Minh City. It helps when you have a local with you.

At the corner of Trương Định and Lê Thánh Tông in District 1 near Ben Thanh, there is a small table that sells Pho Bo in the morning.

All you do is let them get a stool for you, order a bowl – nothing else to say – and then they serve you for 55,000 VND.

What you get is a bowl of sweet and savory broth, filled with silky Pho and different cuts of beef from brisket to tendon to meatballs.

It is outstanding.

Now, no more being intimidated for me. I am going to go again. And again. And again…
