We are so excited. Just as we finalized our nem chua packaging, we found out about the SF Street Food Festival. The timing cannot get any better: Nem Chua is the quintessential Vietnamese street food.
We’re especially proud of our all natural Nem Chua. Do you know anyone who makes Nem Chua without the powder? We don’t, instead we know plenty of people who have given up delicious, addictive Nem because of the opaque chemical curing process. It took a lot of research and experimentation to retrieve the traditional way of making Nem, with only ground beef, pork skin, sugar, salt, and spices. We’d really love to be able to share Nem Chua with Vietnamese and non-Vietnamese alike at this festival.
But we need your help! We can only participate in the festival if we are in the top 4 among interested small businesses. Please go to http://www.sfstreetfoodfest.com/vote_for_your_vendor.php and vote for Rau Om (4th entry from the top). To vote: you need to log in with your Facebook account by clicking on the link at the top of the page before the vote button becomes clickable.
Please help us by getting your friends to vote as well (you don’t have to be in SF to vote). Please vote early! We only have about 7 days to get into the top 4. Decision will be announced on July 29th.
Please vote and then leave a comment in this post. We’ll select a winner through a random drawing for a complimentary pack of nem if we get selected to join the street food festival 🙂
Thank you so much and hope we will be able to post about our experience at the Street Food Festival.
