This legendary eatery has been serving the people of Saigon since pre-Communist days. The menu’s as extensive as ever. Nhu Lan is perhaps best known as a bakery, serving up delicious Vietnamese banh mi bread rolls with pork liver pate and lots of greenery. There's also a huge array of other local dishes. It’s open 24 hours and is perfect for a snack or a laid-back local meal. Pop by for a quick, cheap lunch.

Travel tip - The anonymous building diagonally opposite Nhu Lan was the US Embassy in the early 1960s. It was bombed by Viet Cong in 1965.
