An oldie and a goodie in a formerly Chinese section of District 5. The street and sidewalk here are flooded with pedestrians, merchants and scooters long into the night. The hand-molded beef balls are a highlight in what is one of Ho Chi Minh City's best bowls of pho.
Locals will always hit the restaurants that specialise in a single dish and this renowned spot serves some of the best banh xeo in town. These Vietnamese rice-flour pancakes stuffed with bean sprouts, prawns and pork (vegetarian versions available) are legendary.

Description: Noisy, smoky, chaotic and usually packed, this large restaurant (formerly Luong Son) has had to move from downtown. It specializes in bo tung xeo (sliced beef barbecued at the table served with mustard sauce; the name also refers to a gruesome torture, ask Vietnamese friends for details). The beef, barbecued squid and other delicacies are truly superb. This restaurant is also the place to sample unusual dishes such as scorpion, porcupine, fried cricket, coconut worm and cockerel’s testicles.
