We did the cooking class and street food tour over two days. It was fun and great to learn about the different ingredients used in Viet cuisine. The chefs and scooter drivers were friendly and patient, and made the experience great! Highly recommended, but prepare your stomachs for a crazy amount of food!

A great way to spend a morning or afternoon and learn about Vietnamese cooking! The morning started on the market where the very knowledgeable chef explained a lot about different ingredients and the way to use them. If you participate in the cooking class, don't miss the market part of it. You can find the daily menu on the website... More
