We loved our time at Minas house. The atmosphere of her lovely and clean house and yard alone is nice. Mina provides so much information about the food and lets you help cook too. The dishes turned out so yummy and we left very full.

Not that Mina’s needs another glowing review on TripAdvisor, but I had such a good time, I figured I’d do her the favor of adding another 5 Star. My wife and I found her on trip advisor and went to find her one afternoon. Her...More
