Your ultimate burrito guide in Saigon

If you want to eat something new that is different than usual, you should try burritos! As you know, burritos are one of the most popular Mexican and Tex-Mex foods, made of flour tortilla with various other meat, vegetables and so on.

Today we will introduce 5 restaurants where you can enjoy burritos in Saigon. So if you’re craving some nice burritos then let’s go explore and find your new favorite 😉

La Fiesta

La Fiesta, which means ‘party’ in Spanish, currently has 2 stores located at district 1 and district 7. They are owned by Mr. Scott who is from Maine, USA and his wife, Duc who is from Saigon. La Fiesta opened its first restaurant almost 5 years ago, back when Tex-mex cuisine wasn’t a big thing in Saigon yet.
The couple decided to take Tex-mex cuisine seriously as a business decision to stay competitive and has been attracting more and more frequent customers since then. Anyone would surely love the hospitality and more importantly, the amazing food here. So go with your family and friends to enjoy ‘la fiesta’!

Breakfast burrito has been a staple on the menu for a while but did you know that they can customise to turn it into a wet version?
This one in the picture below is a wet breakfast burrito. It has potatoes, chorizo and the red sauce on top is their new chipotle sauce! Even though it’s called wet breakfast burrito, you can surely order it all time all day.

And below is the breakfast scramble with scrambled eggs topped with sauce, some vegetables and black beans. It comes with hash browns and refried beans as well.

They have recently updated their burrito menu as well. The menu is perfected by Scott, the chef and owner himself.

They have many options for vegetarian and vegan as well, for instance, all sauces should be okay for vegan, and all burritos/bowls and chimichangas are available to choose 1 fillings not only from meat but also from tofu, spinach & mushroom. You can customise salads, tacos, burritos to vegetarian or vegan completely. If you are looking for the restaurant for vegetarian and vegan, we could recommend La Fiesta.
