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 combined with Californian sensibilities. 

You can find us every Thursday at Mojo Bicycle Cafe for our weekly dinner pop-up or for lunch and events catering.

What’s next: We’re in the process of opening our first brick-and-mortar restaurant.


Talented friends we feel fortunate to know and work with.
