    Booked our class by phone and Tripshock emailed my voucher very fast. I would not suggest trying to drive over here because there is no parking lot. Take an Uber or cab. We walked over from our hotel. The school is super easy to find and when you come inside you check in at the cashier stand. Our teacher, Julie was wonderful. Very funny and made you feel very welcome. It was nice to hear some of the history about some of the ingredients while she was cooking along with some of her fave places to buy them! Her helper, Ernest was very kind in passing out our dishes and cleaning them back up. It doesn't feel like you're there for 2.5 hours. It feels more like 90 mins. The time goes by fast and the food is sooooo good! My only regret is not picking up more spices as I left but thankfully they... read more
