Top 14 Local Street Foods In Vung Tau| Trust Car Rental

Probably the most famous seafood restaurant in Vung Tau, Ganh Hao is something of a logistical miracle. This is one of those enormous places that churns through hundreds of diners a day, but still seems to deliver tasty seafood, as ordered, and in reasonable time. My recent meal was sensational. Staff were pleasant too.

Set by the sea in the open air, Ganh Hao serves lunch and dinner. Head down late afternoon, grab a table with a view a few drinks and tuck in. Prices here seem to be around half those of similar places in Saigon.

Ganh Hao’s still a local venue so don’t expect fancy cocktails or an extensive wine list.

Address: 03 Tran Phu, Vung Tau - on the waterfront.

2. Pho Thien Loi ( Thien Loi local noddle soup)

Said to be the oldest restaurant in Vung Tau, Pho Thien Loi started out in the northern province of Nam Dinh before relocating to Vung Tau in the migration of 1954.  Madem Thien Loi, in her nineties, is normally on deck.

5. Cay Da local food house

Any eatery that sets up around the banyan tree (rather than cutting it down) is off to a good start.

Vung Tau’s obligatory French eatery is worth a visit. The chef and owner Jean Francois spent a few years doing F&B at the casino in nearby Ho Tram before taking over 9 Cafe.

I’ve now had breakfast and a couple of dinners here. All were good. The open air space is pleasant and the place has a  welcoming feel. The menu includes French standards, steaks, pastas.

Was some of the best espresso-style coffee I had in Vung Tau too.

From the Bai Truoc (Front Beach), you can find Sao Mai and Ben Da areas by going along the coastal road to Bai Dau where dried fish and fresh seafood are displayed and sold on both sides of the road. It’s a little outside of the city, lying at the end of Tran Phu Street. However, the distance makes this place more local with crowded farmers, fisherman, and vendors bustling in every minute.

The smell of seafood may be uncomfortable, so it’s good to wear a mask while wandering through the maze of stalls.
