Conam's Vietnamese 'Peasant' Food UNLEASHED On Polk Street

1653 Polk Street, Polk Gulch
Phone: 415-292-6161
Status: Certified Open
Kiet Truong's rustic Vietnamese restaurant Conam opens today on Polk Street. And according to early menu tip-offs, chef Andy Nguyen is executing everything from "wraps and rolls," to skewers, clay pots, rice plates, and sautes along with some atypical finds. Remember Truong described the fare as emphasizing classic Vietnamese dishes and "peasant food" from very specific regions in Vietnam. The most expensive entree costs $16. In the early going, the spotlight category on the menu seems to be the cold appetizers, including braised silver fish with caramelized black pepper sauce and sticky rice ($8), and steamed rice crepe with pork sausage basil and nuoc cham ($10). More on the decor and menu can be found here in the Eater Archives. Hours are 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday. Beer and wine only.
