Rainy day popup pho brunch this Sunday

This Sunday, Rice Paper Scissors will be serving up Northern-style beef pho, corn sticky rice, Vietnamese yogurt, and other brunchable delights at their first popup since returning from Vietnam. They’ll be setting up shop around 14th and Folsom from 11am to 4pm; the exact location is yet to be announced, so follow them on Twitter for the tip.

Here’s their blurb on what “Northern-style” pho entails:

There’s nothing more satisfying than a steaming bowl of pho in the morning — and while we were in Vietnam, we held off on eating it until we reached Hanoi — the place where it all originated.

After a late night and waking up Vietnamese style (that means at 6am!) we ventured down Xuân Diệu Street and came across a streetside pho house where locals and taxi drivers go for breakfast. We know about the latter group because one car almost ran over Katie to park and get his morning pho fix.

It was very simple: beef, noodles, damn good broth. Northern-style pho has no frills (aka no herbs and bean sprouts) and simply leaves you to the good stuff. That’s the way we like it.

Full menu and more details here.

    $10 for Pho?

      But for real, people, this should make it pretty plain that most of the people who make the Mission what it is are not the target audience for this place. They want the B&T peeps and whoever’s paying a shit-ton to live in all of the new condos going up. All the tech kids making six figures, etc., etc.

      This is the New Mission. Go live in Oakland or the Sunset if you don’t got the $$$

      Yeah, Ten bucks seems a little steep. Not quite $15-for-a-hamburger steep, but still a bit much.

    Yeah, sorry, but when you’re complaining about prices at hipster trendy pop-ups you’re barking up the wrong tree. you can get better food for about a third of the price in chinatown oakland (2 blocks from downtown BART) and you won’t have to deal with food network groupies.

      Panda Express, y’all, what what? Lots of locations to serve you.

    • Herr Doktor Professor Deth Vegetable says:

      Stop trying to make us go to to the suburbs.

      • Chinatown Oakland says:

        You know how everyone talks about all this great stuff that used to be in SF but it’s gone now because of gentrification or whatever? Yeah… that stuff moved to Oakland.

        Have fun waiting in line for 45 minutes for an overpriced sandwich, sucka!

        • Meowingtons says:

          Tenderloin is still a decent holdout. Outside of that or Oakland, looks like you’re headed to the South Bay.

        • Herr Doktor Professor Deth Vegetable says:

          That’s great and all, but I’m still not going to the suburbs for a sandwich.

        • rod says:

          yeah i’d rather spend 45 minutes riding a train and end up spending even more on BART tickets to eat shittier food . . . this is about quality, not quantity.

          • Chris says:

            If it’s about quality and not quantity, then you probably shouldn’t be eating at Rice, Paper, Scissors.

            Seriously, what’s so scary about the rest of the Bay?

        • GG says:

          Have fun spending an hour and a half in traffic trying to get back over the Bridge. Trust me, I lived in the east bay for 17 years, it’s not worth the trip, no matter how cheap the pho is.

    Any of you a-holes complaining about food being “overpriced” should (1) try starting your own business doing something you love while making a living at it; (2) take a solid look at what the “real” cost of quality food actually is; and (3) STFU and make good on your promise to go to Oakland…your BS is tired.

    Good food is expensive. If you don’t mind eating burgers made with Pink Slime and sprayed with amonia; if you don’t mind eating fruits and veggies covered in poison pesticides, then go ahead and get a $3 burger.

    • Herr Doktor Professor Deth Vegetable says:

      The point is that good burgers, made with good meat, are available at a reasonable price all over this city. Mission Bowling is a statistical outlier.
