Saigon Cooking Class offers cooking class, street food tour & culinary team building! What makes our popular cooking class unique is the association with the fantastic Hoa Tuc restaurant allowing us to use their recipes in a beautiful colonial building. Our talented Chefs exclusively fluent in English teach classic Vietnamese dishes as well as contemporary, excellent, Hoa Tuc signature recipes. Each participant has his own material and ingredients to follow the Chef step by step and cook his own meal. Our goal is to give you as much as possible for 1 session Vietnamese cooking skills so that you can continue to learn and explore by yourself. For adventurous people hop on the back of ours scooters or go for a walking visit and let our Chef guide you across Saigon's hidden alleys to sample the best of local delicacies. A true feast! From Tuesday till Sunday, cooking class twice a day, street food tour everyday! For companies or large group contact us for unforgettable team building!
