Mei Mei Restaurant | Brookline, MA | Boston

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.

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!

  1. This post makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. Mei Mei is one of my favorite eateries in the entire city! The food is consistently creative and delicious, the prices offer great value, and the service couldn’t be friendlier. No matter how rotten a day I might be having, I’m always in a good mood once I visit their truck. I can’t wait to try the brick-and-mortar!
