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

SoWa Market, Art Walk Kick off on Sunday

The birds are chirping, the sun is out, and if that weren’t enough, the spring is about to get that much sweeter in the South End with the opening weekend of the SoWa open market and the annual SoWa Art Walk kicking off this Sunday.

The SoWa Open Market is promising to be even bigger and better this year, in its several venues: the open air market with a farmers’ market, a vintage market and its food trucks. Organizers say there will be more than 100 vendors at the crafts market, 70 vendors at the farmers market and 40 food trucks this year.

You can see a list of all the food trucks here

The farmer’s market is located at 500 Harrison Avenue and features produce from local farmers and specialty food vendors. The open market, at 460 Harrison Ave. features work by local artists and crafters who sell unique gift items like jewelry, clothing, toys, pottery and more. The third part of the market is a large, year-round vintage market that features furniture and clothing. The vintage market is open every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., not just during the summer. And for those with a hankering for a freshly cooked meal, there’s the food truck area in the Trolly Building at 540 Harrison Ave.  read more
