Getting to Know Mui Ne – Taste of Vietnam Cooking Class – Dinner at Vietnam Home Restaurant

We start our day easily and slowly, wander over to breakfast, and stroll around town, looking at the only worthy clothing store in town, called Kim’s Shop. We figure they’ll have sarongs for sale, since it’s a beach town. Not-so-much. Lots of different dress styles, swim suits, pants and skirts, but “No Sarong for you, Amy!”

We happen upon a sign that says, “Cooking Class – A Taste of Vietnam – Low Season special - $12 per person”. We walk up to the beachfront Kitchen. The teacher, Thuy greets us with a warm smile and a promise we’ll adore the class. Who can argue with that? We make reservations and return at 11. For 3 hours, we prep, learn, sample, and cook our brains out, pausing only to devour our creations after creating each course. Thuy is professional yet humourous - just an absolute delight. Take the class! At only $12 USD, it’s worth twice the cost!

We chill in beach chairs all afternoon, then walk to Dinner at a less-than-impressive Mexican joint on Nguyen Dinh Chieu. Feeling less-than-sated, we hop over to Vietnam Home Restaurant for a better meal. They have an upper deck balcony patio which offers views of people walking down Nguyen Dinh Chieu below. Now, tha’s more like it.

We are planning to start the day early tomorrow, hitting the beach in the morning, then taking a motorbike tour of the Mui Ne Sand Dunes.
