Eddie Huang Links Up with the Rice Paper Scissors Girls In the Bay Area
In the second installment of Eddie Huang‘s show Fresh Off The Boat, the New York-based chef meets up with Valerie Luu and Katie Kwan, founders of Rice Paper Scissors in San Francisco, California. R.P.S. was founded with the intention of bringing an authentic Vietnamese street food experience to the city’s Mission district, complete with small plates, small stools, and of course delicious food. After meeting up, Eddie and the ladies venture through various markets, sourcing authentic Vietnamese ingredients along the way while offering up insights on what it means to be an Asian-American chef. In the end, each agrees that food is one of the best ways to immerse oneself within a foreign culture, or to explore one’s own heritage.
