WHERE TO EAT A HEALTHY MEAL IN SAIGON?

Statistically, Vietnamese food holds the title of being some of the healthiest in the world; most of the food here is fresh and tasty. However, the recent western influence has seen a slow increase in fast food, you’re more than likely to find a McDonalds next to a Pho place than ever before and it can be difficult to know what is and isn’t healthy anymore.

#1 POKE SAIGON | 42 Bis Ly Tu Trong, (First floor), District 1, HCMC

Hawaii meets Vietnam at Poke Saigon. You can enjoy a tasty salad bowl with salmon, tuna, tofu or shrimp. The bowl is loaded with rice, salad and sauce making Poke Saigon a great substitute to the deep-fried food that has found its way into Vietnam. A little out of the way and hidden above a garage, but definitely worth the journey and a perfect Instagram shot for your feed! #sipinsaigon

#2 CONTEMPORARY HUE | 74/7 Hai Bà Trưng, Bến Nghé, District 1, HCMC

Hue Contemporary Cuisine restaurant brings a fresh twist to the Hue cuisine. Bold flavours, delicious bites and colourful plating is what this new contemporary Vietnamese eatery is all about. Their Bún bò Huế với chả cua is so good that it will make you come-back for sure. Anyway, there are no restrictions to have with healthy food, that’s the good part!
