If you're looking to enjoy a fun, laid-back night out, Nguyen Trung Truc Street is home to a string of cheap and cheerful bar-and-grill joints that attract scores of locals throughout the evening. Even though there is indoor seating, everyone is on the street. Ongoing entertainment is provided by fire-breathers and clusters of guitar-strumming, crooning customers. Xua va Nay (33 Nguyen Trung Truc) is the most popular restaurant, but farther up the street Saigon Xua va Nay (no relation) is just as good, and Saigon Night repeats the winning formula. To get started, order a round of Saigon beer and a plate of pork ribs (suon nuong). The street party continues until midnight.
