It’s time to get this shit off my chest: The Vietnamese salad at Kim SÆ¡n restuarant in the Outer Richmond is fantastic. You know, a lot of people didn’t want me to say this, but the Vietnamese salad at Kim SÆ¡n restuarant in the Outer Richmond is actually a new favorite SF dish of mine. The last time I ordered it I was so inspired that I promised myself I would articulate my love in this very post. So what you see here is the sweet dressing getting soaked up by a bed of snappy vegetables while the perfectly fried tofu ensures that I don’t miss the meat. A small mountain of peanuts adds some booming bass notes to the crunch, and the deep fried garlic slivers just push the whole goddamned pile over the edge. Seven bucks.
