  1. very cool, and well enough addressed ingredients and process that even an Asian dodart like me can follow. Bonus, entertaining–thanks!

  2. You are so funny! I definitely enjoyed your personality. These recipes you shared are a hit in my house. Thank you!

  3. you have a really big Nose. and your eyes are very close together. and your shoulders are very narrow. and you have a strange way to talk, like, as if you were not speaking like you really talk, but like someone told you what you should talk like to sound "cool".

    I bet you are circumcised.

  4. Does any other Vietnamese remember when people would pronounce ur last name wrong 😂 ( but he is trying so that’s fine)

  5. i absolutely love pho. Perfect food for winter time and sinus problems. i kinda like to go crazy with the chili oil and jalapenos in it, because I like it really spicy. Putting that basil at the bottom of the bowl really helps, because it gives that broth an amazing flavor.

  6. My uncle married a Vietnamese woman when I was around 8, she made fried Cha Gio, though I remember it being called by another name “I was young” I do not recall what was n it, but remember she chopped it all up, and she would have a bowl or plate of water, she’d go from one side to the other running the rice paper through the water. I’m 58 now, and the past years I have always thought about it, never forgetting what it tasted like, no restaurant makes it. I will follow ur directions “but chop it up” and make it, and will that u forever n my mind if it turns out/taste like hers!!! Thank u

  7. Here is another delicious Vietnamese recipe, please subscribe my channel if you want to see more Vietnamese recipes:

  8. Has he never heard any of the words pronounced? Like some aren’t even close like he just read em and went for it which I respect but damn

  9. I agree with you 100% percent that Vietnamese food is underrated. I love to eat it but have only had the courage to make the spring rolls. Thank you for making Viet cooking accessible here.
