Hi! I'm Hiếu (pronounced almost like Hugh). Me and my girlfriend Spring are both vegetarians. We will guide you through this delicious exploration of Vegan Viet cuisine.
Join us on this adventure that combines mouthwatering food, vibrant neighborhoods, and fun-loving people as we get off the main streets and discover Saigon’s delicious vegan food destinations. We’ll take the best way to explore the city: on foot!
We’ll walk around two historic districts, taste unique and delightful plant-based Vietnamese dishes, and see local life up close. We’ve hand-picked the best vegan bites in the city so you don’t have to second guess, it’s a delight to share these food finds with you :)
In the past 4 years, we're deeply inspired by the plant-based diet and work together as a tour guide for 2 years - We've spent a lot of times researching and developed connections to make our tour One of the kind for you!
