Eat With a Local Saigon Family – Cô Nhật Minh 

We had  a wonderful time with Cô Nhật Minh and her family … and my parents enjoyed it a lot as well. Our translator Danh was very cheerful and helpful. He made the whole process so much easier and enjoyable for everyone. As for the food, it was delicious!!!! She taught us how to wrap gỏi cuốn – the best ice breaker ever!  It really was the highlight of our trip.  We’d definitely visit again if we’re ever in Saigon.

Thank you so much for booking our evening with Co Nhat Minh. We had such a wonderful time with her and her extended family. It was one of the highlights of our trip and we had an amazing trip!

Not only is Cô Nhật Minh an excellent cook, but she is also a popular cooking teacher in Saigon!  Now, of course, her Saigon cooking students are Vietnamese and her classes are conducted in Vietnamese.  However, excellent food is excellent food and “speaks” for itself!  (And, we’ll have a young student translator to ensure you can communicate easily and enjoy a wonderful evening together.) Cô Nhật Minh, along with husband and their two children, will welcome you into their pleasant home in a Saigon working-class neighborhood.   Some of her favorite Vietnamese dishes include braised ginger chicken, claypot fish steak in a spicy caramelized sauce, squash with duck egg, morning glory flower with garlic, fresh spring rolls, and braised pork and egg in a savory sauce over rice. Drinks may include sugar cane drink or fresh pineapple juice.
