SoWa Food Truck Runs Kickstarter Campaign to Open Restaurant

Mei-Mei Street Kitchen food truck serving creative and locally-sourced Chinese-American fare.

One of Boston’s most popular food trucks, Mei Mei’s Street Kitchen, is opening a brick-and-mortar restaurant in Audubon Circle this summer. But the owners of this already non-traditional business have sourced funding for their new expansion in yet another non-traditional way: By launching a Kickstarter campaign. 

Owners and siblings Andy, Margaret (Mei) & Irene Li opened their American-Chinese cuisine food truck in 2012, combining Andy’s dining management experience with Mei’s business acumen and Irene’s farming and cooking skills. 

Their Kickstarter campaign set a goal of $ 28,000 on June 1st to help turn their brick-and-mortar restaurance space into a certified sustainable business by the Sustainable Business Network. The trio said funds raised will go to environmentally-friendly improvements such as energy-efficient lighting, infrastructure & kitchen equipment, low-flow plumbing, compost and recycling programs, reclaimed materials for our floors, walls and counters and other green intiatives.  read more

Healthy Fast Food Restaurant Eyes Downtown Spots

Food from LYFE Kitchen.

A California-based company offering healthier fast food options could soon be coming to Boston.

Lyfe Kitchen is looking for space in the city’s Downtown Crossing, Seaport District and Faneuil Hall areas in an effort to bring their quick-and-healthy restaurant concept from the West Coast to the East, the Boston Business Journal reports.

The company currently has two locations in Culver City and Palo Alto, CA and is looking to expand to 250 restaurants nationwide, according to the BBJ. That could include up to 10 Lyfe Kitchens in the Boston area.

Lyfe Kitchen’s menu items are all under 600 calories each, and the company promises “quality food using locally and sustainably sourced ingredients whenever possible,” according to its website, restaurant.lyfekitchen.com.

The menu features breakfast to dinner options, with salads, “small bites” and desserts in between. Main dish offerings include a quinoa crunch wrap (547 calories, $ 8.99), grilled barramundi with soba noodles (286 calories, $ 13.99) and portobello pasta (581 calories, $ 11.99), among many others. read more
