Extreme Food Challenge in Ho Chi Minh City

We take you to try a series of restaurants and street food locations to experience all the weird and wonderful food that Vietnam has to offer.

Everyone gets to play 'Extreme Food Bingo' with 8 dishes to complete, and you'll get a stamp for each one you try.

Finish all 8 and you'll earn yourself a commemorative t-shirt featuring the 8 dishes to take back home!

You'll have a local friend by your side for the whole tour, and you'll never be pushed into trying anything you don't want to.

If you're just curious, you're not alone - many people just come along to see what's on offer without trying much themselves!

    Stop At: Saigon After Dark, 4 Nguyễn Đình Chiểu, Đa Kao, Quận 1, Thành phố Hồ Chí Minh, Vietnam

    You'll be collected from your hotel doorstep by our experienced and trained riders, who will be yours for the tour. After they have helped you with your helmet and you've gotten comfortable on the back of the motorbike, you'll be taken through the bustling streets of Saigon to your first destination to try your first dish.

    The list of dishes you will get to try (in no particular order) are:
    • Pig Brain Soup
    • Grilled Scorpion
    • Duck Tongues
    • Eels
    • Fertilized Duck Egg
    • Snakes
    • Bull Penis
    • Live Coconut Larvae

    While we always encourage people to go for all 8 to complete their 'Extreme Food Bingo' stamps, we are always respectful of everyone's comfort. Sometimes you might not feel like trying a certain dish - that's more than OK and we have many people just coming along to see the interesting and bizarre local foods. If no-one on the tour is willing to try a particular dish, it's up to the tour guide to show how it's done. If they can't do it, everyone gets a stamp on their card for that one!

    You'll get plenty of opportunities for photo's and selfies along the way to share with your friends back home, and our tour leader is always happy to help you with getting that perfect shot - especially if you finish all 8 challenges and win that t-shirt! At the end of the tour we will drop you back at your hotel safe & sound, or you're welcome to party on and be dropped off at the nightlife district of Bui Vien St. Either way, this is going to be an experience you won't soon forget!
