Owner description: Join the Local Can Tho Street Food Tour and explore Cantho life through the food we eat. Learn more about our food and the culture of the Mekong-Delta. What will you experience+ A walk through some of the upcoming locations in Can Tho city+ Absolutely local street food+ Locally produced beer and freshly-made fruit drinks+ The Mekong city life through the eyes of a local and cultural stories on the corners we pass+ Interesting facts about the food we eat+ Meeting other international traveller and locals. Celebrate Mekong Street Food: ❶ We start the tour at a place where we get a deep fried fish tofu stick and beef snack balls (7.000VND). ❷ We continue to a place in the food street, where we eat Banh Cong (10.000 VND), a Can Tho traditional pie cake made from a mixture of green beans, little shrimp and minced pork, which is steamed and then deep fried in a flour dough. ❸ At the next location we try “Nem Nuong” - pork BBQ rolled up in rice paper with rice noodles, lettuce, thin banana slices, Asian basil, mint, pineapple, coriander, fresh herbs and leaves, that you dip in a yummy sweet-spicy sauce (18.000 VND/portion). ❸ If you are getting thirsty, do not worry. We will right away stop by a local pub and enjoy an extra-large jug of “Phong Dinh” beer (36.000 VND/2L), the locally produced beer named after the historic name of Can Tho city. ❺ Arriving at the riverside a friendly lady, known by the Can Tho youth since their childhood, “Di map” (Jie map), will make us the most yummy sticky rice (6.000 VND). ❻ We will end our evening excursion at a street cafe in the quay area with a fresh smoothie made from fruits of the delta (15.000 VND). Options: As we have dozens of locations and hundreds of street food stalls in the city, we can adapt the tour to the preferences of our daily groups. There is an option of a Vegetarian tour or an “Out of the ordinary tour” available where you can try rather strange food like grilled field mice, snakes, frogs or snails.Start: 6.30 pm daily. Place: 93 Mau Than Street, Xuan Khanh, Ninh Kieu in Can Tho. Price: Pay What You Like at the end of the tour.

“A great night out with yummy treats!”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

Our guide Thoai was great on this food tour. We walked down some lovely streets, this city is beautiful at night! Thoai took us to some very yummy and very different food stalls that we would have never have found. Everything was so yum and Thoai was great company! Highly recommend! We also did the 7hour morning mekong tour which was lovely, the countryside and small canals were so charming! Thumbs up!

“Great, relaxed food tour”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

We loved the Can Tho food tour. Thoai is a fantastic guide, and the food was both fascinating and delicious. We would never have tried so many great things without this tour. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

“Wonderful food wonderful guide”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Highly recommend this tour and should definately be done at the beginning of your stay so you know where the best places to eat are!! We tasted some wonderful dishes and our guide spoke fantastic English and was very informative. Make sure you have an empty belly as the 5/6 dishes we had were filling! If you want to be a little more adventurous you have the option of trying mouse and snake....we stuck with the just the mouse and it was actually really really good!! If there's a good group of people it can be a brilliant tour and if not, it's still well worth doing-highlight of our visit to can tho!
