If you are unsure about any kind of meat then do not try to eat it. Only opt for the stalls where you see the locals gathering. Do not feel sorry for the less crowded stalls, they are less crowded for a reason. When it comes to water you need to be more cautious. Always have bottled water with yourself during your Vietnam travel.

Some dealers target tourist, sell the tourist drugs and then rat them out for a bribe.
