Rice Paper Scissors 3.0 Fri. May 13th (HUE-oh!)

May 6, 2011


Poster by Adam Barry

At last month's Rice Paper Scissors we visited Saigon, now we're moving up to Central Vietnam for our third edition, going down Friday, May 13th, 6-10pm, somewhere in the Mission.


We're concentrating on Huế, the former imperial capital of Vietnam, which was ruled by the Nguyễn dynasty for over 100 years. Their food is characterized as being very particular and complex; a story goes that one emperor was so picky that he demanded to eat 50 different dishes, cooked by 50 chefs, and brought to him by 50 different servants.


We're not bringing 50 dishes, but we're still offering an ambitious menu of nine traditional Huế dishes. Because of it's former imperial influence, the cuisine is skews Chinese. (Katie's Chinese, so she's gonna bring. it. hard.)


Our menu includes Happy Pancakes (a Central version of the Vietnamese crepes), Jellyfish Salad, and Bún bò Huế , the region's signature beef noodle soup. We're also bringing back water fern cakes and our signature banh mi sandwiches. See our full menu below.


And there's more! We're very excited to offer a special limited dish: sticky rice stuffed quail, which is available only if you pre-order. It's crazy good, so head on over here if you want to reserve your spot. Bonus: there's a special (and shorter) line if you order this dish!


As always, we're not announcing the location until the day of - but rest be sure we'll transform our space to look, feel, taste like Vietnam, complete with red stools and rickshaws and really good food. Follow us at @littleknock and @kitchensidecar for the location (we'll announce it the day of) or sign up for our email list.


See you soon!
Valerie + Katie
