we went to check out mei mei street kitchen ‘s first brick & mortar location last night.
there were some familiar items on menu such as double awesome and dumplings, but the dinner features more and different proteins in very elaborate forms while still keeping the same concepts with the truck.
left: spindrift soda: blackberry
right: woodsman’s refresher – rhody fresh whole milk with south face farm maple syrup
confit beef tongue – green sauce, red braised & charred leeks, pickled onions, nori
def my fave of the night. the beef tongue was tender, meaty.
trotters & waffles – John Crow Farm pork, brioche waffle, Dijon whip, spicy sauce.
we enjoyed this one a lot too.
carrots & seeds – maple lapsang glaze, ricotta, sunflower seeds, cranberries, black sesame
charred cabbage salad – black bean vinaigrette, apples, feta, garlic panko, slow-poached-then-fried egg
pork dumplings – soy broth, black garlic, fennel, tart apple jelly, almond
probably the fanciest presentation of pork dumplings ive ever seen.
braised beef dumplings – hand-rolled adams farm dumplings, served with sriracha rice.
john crow farm rib & belly pork chop – served with housemade steam buns, miso cabbage, cranberry hosin, tart apply jelly, carrot pickles, pea shoots.
snow cream – shaved ice with maple & coffee syrup, chestnut puree, crushed peanuts
fried steam buns – chipotle nutella, cranberry jam, cocoa nib brittle

food was creative and tasty, but the very best part about mei mei team is their OUTSTANDING & FRIENDLY service. i was always impressed by how good their service is when i visited their truck; they never fail to put a smile on my face. no doubt that the service at mei mei restaurant remains exceptional. a pleasant experience is guaranteed every time. i really wish they served alcohol, otherwise this couldve been a really nice hang out spot!
best of the luck to the Mei, Irene, and Andy!
