Halloween at Rice Paper Scissors

We’ve got a special Halloween menu this Thursday at Mojo Bicycle Cafe featuring blood, guts and pumpkins.

Blood: Our soup, Banh Canh Cha Ca (or Fish and Pork Soup with Tapioca Noodles - pictured above) will have huyet (blood cubes) floating alongside housemade tapioca noodles, dill fishcake, fish balls, pork shank, and shrimp.

What are blood cubes exactly? It’s coagulated pig blood formed into cubes, common in Vietnamese soups such as rice porridge and Bun Bo Hue and other noodle soups. It adds a great texture and mineral taste. Even when I was a vegetarian, I found myself fishing for them in my rice porridge (instead of fishing them out.) Food writer Andrea Nguyen wrote an excellent explanation of blood cubes during her investigation of Pork Blood Pho.

Guts: The Eight Treasures Rice Plate will feature spicy tripe with pickled turnips along with seven other treasures: Bo Luc Lac (Shaking Beef with Parmesan and lemon), seared cabbage with dried shrimp, grilled okra with housemade XO sauce, salt-and-pepper tofu, roasted kabocha squash, soft egg and dua gia (pickled bean sprouts).

Pumpkin: In cookie form! Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies will be served as part of our housemade cookie assortment.
