Spring Roll Cooking Class

One of the Best highlight of our Trip. I wanted to start taking cooking class in all the countries that I will go to and it so happen that HCM is the first one. And sure,I was not disappointed. It was an awesome experience. I would recommend our
friends to get this cooking class with Elise when visiting HCM. I will surely book another class when I visit again. Not only is your stomach full, you heart is also full. ☺️☺️☺️ Elise and her mom are the sweetest.

Saigon Street Food Tour: the 10 Tastings

Elise was great! We would have never tried the food we did on her tour. She is very knowledgeable, speaks very good English and can give some good tips. It was interesting to learn from her a bit more about the local culture. In the tour we had a good range of dishes - some were outstanding ( we are still craving the mixed green papaya salad), Vietnamese sandwich was the best we had in Vietnam. Very interesting to try the local eateries and really local dishes. Would highly recommend for anybody visiting Vietnam. Ask Elise for her advise on what specialties to bring home.
