The Rundown: Valerie Luu and Katie Kwan, founders of Vietnamese street food staples Little Knock and KitchenSideCar, made a recent pilgrimage to the non-literal food temples of Vietnam. Now they're back and they'd like to share the gastronomic discoveries with a few of their closest, ticket-purchasing friends.
Focusing on the traditional meals they had home-cooked or served at restaurant staff meals, the street food-savvy ladies are bringing their trip to Southeast Asia back to the tables of San Francisco. Whatever secret hideout decides to host this travelogue of food, will be decked out with banquet tables and lazy susans to approximate what Rice Paper Scissors deems there "favorite way of eating." Family Meal diners will be treated to Bahn Beo (steamed rice cakes with ground dried shrimp and fried chicharrones), DIY Springs Rolls (so beloved by the duo that they smuggled special DIY Spring Roll rice paper out of the country), avocado ice cream, and a few other mouth-watering surprises straight from the jungles of Vietnam.
Dried shrimp and
avocado ice cream? There needs be no other reason to grab a ticket right here
