Visiting Ho Chi Minh City, what are the best meals to eat and where are the best restaurants to eat it?
Tran Son is right. You can choose some local food restaurants here. Ben Thanh Market is good choice but it's little touristic and quite expensive (compared with local price).

We loved our meal at Nha hang Ngon-the owner has taken 12 of the best street food vendors and put them all under one roof with one menu.

If you're fond of dishes of shrimp, you can choose to go to Vương Quốc Đồ Chơi My Kingdom which is located at No.13, Le Quy Don, District 3.

Lots of amazing things to eat in Ho Chi Minh City. It's hardly to choose the best one.
To open with, Vietnamese broken rice (Cơm tấm) is ranked first of the list. I've lived in Ho Chi Minh for 2 years, I saw a lot of local people have this dish every day. The beautiful combination of rice and pork is truly a beautiful treat for me.
Secondly, Rice Paper Salad (Bánh tráng trộn) - a familiar snack for youngsters in Ho Chi Minh. It can be sold near schools where students come and eat Banh tranh tron after their school.
Lastly, Snails which are made in different ways is the most common food in Sai Gon, especially at night. There is a chain of restaurants selling snails in Nguyen Trai street.
