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!

That’s 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 your hand at new flavors, with 15 recipes that include:
• Banh Mi Sandwich
• Vietnamese Crêpes
• Vermicelli Noodles
• Egg Rolls
• Broken Rice
• and 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 farther than just Phở!

Not Phở fully supports VoiceOver, several Accessibility features, and is localized in English and Vietnamese. When an external keyboard is connected, you can even grow or shrink the text size when you need it most using the ⌘+ and ⌘– commands.

It’s beautiful!

I downloaded this because I was interested in the recipes, but now I’m just scrolling through it because it’s one of the most elegant app I’ve ever seen. Icons are crisp, easy to navigate, I wish all cooking apps were this good. It’s a pleasure to just look at, but also it does an excellent detailed job explaining many dishes I’ve been wanting to make. Can’t wait to get cooking!

This app taught me more about Vietnamese cuisine in a few minutes than I learned reading menus for years. The graphics are really fun too. Be prepared though, this app made me hungry.
