Cooking off the Cuff Pho Meal Kit (w/VBP Conversation Kit)
Are you PHO real? Our first meal kit is finally here, with all the puns included!
We’re proud to announce this iconic Vietnamese noodle kit with our friend Ly Nguyen from Cooking off the Cuff. This special collaboration also features our favorite artisan fish sauce from Son Fish Sauce, and of course, the one and only chili oil from Mai Mom's, two of our favorite Vietnamese American family-owned and operated businesses.
Pho is a traditional Vietnamese noodle soup and is the country’s national dish that is heavily influenced by both Chinese and French cuisine. This comfort dish is made by adding meats, bones, and aromatics to the broth. An iconic go-to breakfast in Vietnam that can be found across the entire region has been popularized in the United States and is easily one of Tuk Tuk Box's favorite meals.
Our friend Ly Nguyen is sharing her family’s favorite shortcut Oxtail Pho recipe with us and we couldn’t wait to share it too!
We've made it quick and easy without compromising the taste.
Our meal kit can make approximately 4-6 servings, complete with all the pantry staples and aromatic spices -- all you need to source is the produce. Serving up similar great tastes you’ve enjoyed during your last visit to Vietnam or in one of your favorite local Vietnamese restaurants! Included are sustainable bamboo chopsticks and Ly’s household’s staple red and white melamine bowl with a matching spoon reminiscent of her childhood. You will also receive a custom-designed canvas tote bag featuring a repeating "cám ơn" pattern or "thank you" in Ly's mother tongue.
