We found it this time! Mei Mei Street Kitchen is now under our food truck belts.
The menu offering is on the small side, compared to yesterday’s trip to Momogoose. After much discussion, this is what we ordered:
I got the barley salad with honey miso vinaigrette, scallions, cranberries, and peanut brittle. (Mei Mei was able to accomodate my request for no cilantro.)
My sister and I started out at Mother Juice today. It’s a juice/smoothie bar on a truck!
We decided to order one of their smoothies and one of their juices. Can you guess which ones we bought?
Today, my lunch destination was the Fugu food truck.
I’ve been wanting to eat here ever since I saw their website… I might have to admit a serious interest in anything-steamed-buns. (^_^)
Also? I work in a location and live in a location that doesn’t have food trucks at all. So, I feel very inclined to explore the food truck culture in Boston while I have the opportunity, especially on a gorgeous summer day like today. (The cold air from yesterday? Completely gone!)
Fugu’s steamed buns were not what I was expecting. The buns themselves were good (but then again, I suspect most places don’t make their own buns and source them from elsewhere). The filling was not at all what I imagined. Pork belly is often braised, and theirs were very soft… but I think I wanted something like a quick sear on the pork. A bit of crunch would have given it a nice contrast in texture with the fat. The part that I was really nitpicking over the most was the sauce. I don’t know why, but it tasted like it came out of a jar to me. It’s probably just a personal taste preference thing… that or my taste buds are seriously spoiled by the steamed buns at Basho (which are pretty stellar, by the way).
No worries, though. Continue reading
