The Traveller Magazine has revealed its list of the top street food cities in the world. Ho Chi Minh City is among the top ten, along with Taipei (Taiwan), Phnom Penh (Cambodia), Chiang Mai (Thailand) and other cities.

According to the Australian magazine, the city’s street stalls, especially around Ben Thanh Market, are famous, and visitors just need to point and tuck in. Recommended dishes to try include chicken and mushroom soup, pancakes, and seasoned beef with peanut sauce wrapped in leaves, all washed down with freshly sugarcane juice or cold beer. Baguettes stuffed with salted pork or pickled vegetables and national obsession pho (soup noodles) are other local favorites.
