Sip suggestion: St Louis Ribs (smoked pork ribs with BBQ sauce) – 380,000 VND

Saigon meets smokehouse here in District 1! Founder and chef Jake has been working in the business since the age of 16, all of that knowledge must equal some pretty tasty food.

The menu is hearty, the staff are friendly, and the drinks are plenty. Enjoy your time at Jake’s BBQ, a casual venue with all the American trimmings!

#4 MARCEL GOURMET BURGER | 132 Calmette, District 1, HCMC

Sip Suggestion: ‘Le Signature’ burger – 180,000 VND

Comfort food enthusiasts will love this place. Marcel Gourmet Burger is a stylish burger joint, perfect for a relaxing meal with friends. The whole menu is mouth-watering but ‘Le Signature’ burger is our top pick to try: an Australian grass-fed beef patty smothered in Raclette cheese, secret pepper sauce, gherkins relish, balsamic caramelized onions, lettuce and an heart-beef tomato slice. Hearty eater? Ask for a double-patty!

#6 RIO CHURRASCARIA | (2nd floor) 10AB Thai Van Lung Street, District 1, HCMC

Sip Suggestion: ask for the ‘Brazilian Churrasco”, an all-you-can-eat menu – 999,000 VND

The Brazilians really know how to enjoy meat. Rio Churrascaria is an authentic restaurant that offers a traditional rodizio barbeque for customers – meaning you can get a good meat fix. For those of you who don’t know what a Brazilian Churrascaria is: think endless skewers of freshly barbecued meat, sliced and served by ‘pasadores’ (meat cutters) right at your table! At Rio Churrascaria, all of the food is tasty but the ‘Perna de Carneiro’ is a stand out dish. It is a juicy leg of lamb all the way from New Zealand, grilled with charcoal on a open flame! Tasty.
