Event Details

We've ended our pre-sales for the dish. Come by tonight at 3330 20th Street at Shotwell to eat banh mi's, bun rieu and more! If you missed the fish, there's a chance we'll have more.


Pan-seared Tumeric Fish (Cha Ca)

Tossed with galangal, dill, and scallions on a bed of rice vermicelli and served with black sesame crackers, fresh herbs, and roasted peanuts.



We're only making a limited number of this dish, so pre-order them here (they won't be sold a la carte at Rice Paper Scissors, so this is the only way to get 'em).

When you arrive, our cashier will "check you in" for your dish and to take any additional orders you want to take off our menu. No ticket printing required - unless you want to!


We'll email you our location the day of, also follow us @ricepapersf or join our email list to receive additional tips.


If there is one dish that sums up Hanoi, it is this sizzling hot pan of golden catfish. Born in a quiet alleyway in Hanoi, Cha Ca, or pan-seared tumeric fish, perfumed the air with it's heady mixture of tumeric, galangal, and dill.  So well received was this pairing that it gave what is now known as Fried Fish Alley it namesake. 

These days, many Hanoi restaurants serve up this simple yet addictive dish. However, none is more renowned than Cha Ca La Vong, which lists it as the solitary item on the menu. Despite its modest decor, hungry eaters brave death-by-motorbike to get down on this fish. Served on a bed of rice noodles and a generous sprinkling of peanuts, it is the only thing patrons need. That, and a cold beer to wash it down.

Join us as we bring this truly distinctive Hanoi dish to the streets of San Francisco!
