Quan An Ngon, Ho Chi Minh City

138 Nam Ky Khoi Nghia Street
Ho Chi Minh City
Tel: 84 8 829 9449's insider take:

The owner of this popular restaurant scoured the streets for the best dishes he could find, then offered the sellers a gig at his new restaurant at a regular wage. Thus Quan An Ngon was born in 2001. Now 20 or more former street vendors stand in the restaurant's open-air dining area preparing specialties such as spring rolls, bun cha (char-grilled meat and peanuts over rice noodles) and bun bo hue (spicy soup with seafood and pork). The communal tables are packed with locals—always an auspicious sign.
