tippys mexican food - this is saigon


Great Mexican food in Saigon for the burrito lovers

Tippy’s Mexican food has been a staple Burrito shop for anyone living in the city. 

It’s two shops (District 2 and District 4) have been smashing out that Arizonan / style of Mexican for years.  Both shops are pretty compact, but outdoor spaces, live music and some good craft beer on tap, makes it a fun venue when you need to get your Mexican fix on. 


Burrito mexican food HCMC


Great Mexican food in Saigon for Street style gourmet tacos

With Rock star looks and a background in fine dining, El Camino’s owner Bui or Calvin to his friends has been smashing out what he calls Korean style taco’s in Thao dien and d7.

The menu is seriously well thought out, a great selection of craft beer and matched with old school hip hop makes it a great place to kick back and enjoy. 

The venue is more street style then fine dining, but a vibey crowd gives the place a unique feel.
