TRANSPARENCY

You have the right to know where your food comes from. Therefore, every meal kit and packaged food comes with the source of each ingredient. Before ordering, you are also welcome to browse our classic recipes to see if they are right for you. 

FARM TO PLATE 

We source produce mostly from local farms such as Thao Family Farm of Fresno, CA, heirloom organic rice from Koda Farms, and humanly raised meat such as Jidori chicken and Silky pork from our local Japanese market due to their high standards in quality and animal treatment. All of our fish are wild-caught.

WHERE TRADITION MEETS WELLNESS

While we are all about honoring ancient Vietnamese traditions, in our recipes, we make certain modifications to a dish in order to put your health first, not to "Americanize" its favor.

 

This means eliminating all ingredients that contain gluten, refined sugar, and chemicals. We also sprout rice and beans and pressure-cook them to remove lectins. For this reason, rice and beans are always already cooked when you receive them in your meal kits. 

Aside from eliminating artificial sweeteners that contain harmful chemicals, we also limit the use of natural sweeteners that may raise blood sugar levels like cane sugar, coconut sugar, honey, maple syrup, agave, and most fruits. 

THE BIG 5 NO'S

01

Gluten in certain grains, starches, conventional soy sauce, vinegar & other condiments

02

Common foods that contain GMO such as conventional soy, corn, potatoes and squashes

03

Refined sugar and other sweeteners that raise blood sugar levels such as corn syrup, honey, agave & maple syrup

04

Hormones & chemicals, such as those in preservatives, additives and most artificial sweeteners

05

Highly processed oils such as soybean, corn, safflower, canola, and peanut oil

SUSTAINABILITY

We do our best to minimize waste in our kitchen by following the traditional Vietnamese root-to-leaf cooking philosophy and asking fresh meal kit customers to order in advance to allow for just-enough groceries.

 

For packaging, we encourage you to bring your own bag when you pick up your fresh kits. Most of our fresh ingredients are packaged in reusable containers, which we charge a small deposit for. The deposit is refunded as soon as you return the containers to us.

We support various dietary regimens

KETO

Our food is generally keto-friendly. For dishes that contain rice & rice noodles, we offer kelp, shirataki or cauliflower substitutes when possible.

Our menu always has vegetarian options. For dishes that contain meat or fish, we offer egg or plant-based substitutes when possible.

Every week's menu includes plant-based options that honor the plants in their natural state, without the use of processed imitation meat, egg, or cheese.

SPREAD THE JOY OF VIETNAMESE COOKING

Our goal is to make you fall in love not only with our food but also with Vietnamese cooking. This is why we design our meal kit recipes and cooking classes to be simple, fun, and educational at the same time. We want every meal kit to be an opportunity for you to learn how to cook Vietnamese food so that you can also do it all on your own without our kits or recipes.
