Rice Paper Scissors was created in 2011 by Valerie Luu and Katie Kwan.

Inspired by the sidewalk dining and street food they experienced in Vietnam, Kwan and Luu wanted to recreate the experience here in San Francisco — complete with little red stools, Cambodian pop music, and a rotating menu of regional Vietnamese dishes handmade with Bay Area produce and ethos. They're working on opening their first brick-and-mortar restaurant on Folsom and 22nd in Fall 2018. In the meantime, you can order their catered DIY Pho Bar or follow them at @ricepapersf to find out about upcoming pop-ups. 


Talented friends we feel fortunate to know and work with.
