D4 Seafood Paradise Vinh Khanh Is Now an Official Saigon Food Street

District 4’s nhậu neighborhood has been turned into an official food street by Saigon authorities.

Tuoi Tre reports that on March 30, the District 4 People’s Committee held a ceremony to launch the Vinh Khanh Food Street on site. The street runs from Ben Van Don in northern District 4 to Ton Dan Street in the heart of the neighborhood.

The proliferation of outdoor eateries along Vinh Khanh within the last five years or so has transformed the short thoroughfare into a night hotspot. Casual seafood restaurants line the street, nestled under shad-casting of canopies.

Now, local officials have decided to take the busy street to the next level by dubbing it a “food street.” Apart from the title and a snazzy neon entrance, Vinh Khanh will receive assistance from local authorities with managing the parking situation and ensuring that its rowdiness doesn’t get out of hand.

Municipal authorities will also monitor local eateries to maintain a high level of food hygiene and acceptable pricing.

Plans to convert Vinh Khanh into an official food street began this January, after two food street projects in Saigon were carried out successfully last year. In 2017, the city established two designated street food areas in August and October. The former is on Nguyen Van Chiem Street behind Diamond Plaza while the latter occupies the Bach Tung Diep Park on Ly Tu Trong Street.

Saigoneer is not immune to the lure of Vinh Khanh’s mouth-watering food scene either. In the past, we’ve featured three restaurants on the street: fresh and affordable Sushi Ko, a banquet of grilled oysters done 24 ways, and a humble shop that serves crispy fried chicken and noodles.
