Inspiration Behind Not Phở

What is Not Phở and why the name Not Phở? To be clear, there is nothing wrong with Phở and as a matter of fact it is one of my favorite noodle soups. However, there is more to Vietnamese cuisine than just Phở, and many people I know are not even aware that these other delicious dishes even exist!

This is where Not Phở comes in - it's a digital cookbook exploring Vietnamese cuisine, accompanied by beautiful illustrations and interactive animations to make the experience memorable. Try you hand at new flavors with 50+ recipes that include:

jalapenoBánh Mì (Sandwich)

jalapenoBánh Xèo (Vietnamese Crepe)

jalapenoBún Thịt Nướng (Vermicelli Noodles)

jalapenoCơm Tấm (Broken Rice)

jalapenoand more!

These are recipes that I grew up with, and collected and modified over the years, to showcase what Vietnamese cuisine is all about. That said, the dishes and recipes presented are just a small sample of Vietnamese culture, and there is still more to be explored!

The name Not Phở was chosen not to deter people, but contrarily it is meant to encourage you to explore Vietnamese cuisine to its fullest, broadening your horizons much further than just Phở!
