The Double Awesome (from $9 to $11.50 at dinner)
Mei Mei Restaurant, Fenway/Kenmore
The Mei Mei crew rocked the local scene (and taste buds) with their crave-worthy food truck favorite Double Awesome (scallion pancake sandwich with local greens pesto, Vermont cheddar, oozy poached eggs). They’ve upped the ante at their brick & mortar with a shareable dinner portion ($9) plus meaty add-ons (house-made bacon, ham, or pastrami -- $2.50 each)… equaling quadruple awesome for your appetite and bank account. Daily specials (like the Big Bowl of Spring Stuff – roast pork, Spring-dug parsnips, fiddleheads, turnips, poached rhubarb, asparagus, radish & mustard greens, raw egg yolk, and smoked spelt bonji) are usually $15 or less, so pop in for some fresh bites ASAP.
