Three Things to Know About DooWee & Rice
As that tingling sensation in your big toe has been hinting at, there’s a new Asian
street food depot rising in Somerville: DooWee & Rice
. After braving the trek to the greater Tufts
University area, here we present three things to know about it.
It’s like an indoor food truck, but with seats.
And a 55-inch flat-screen,
which will be employed on Wednesday evenings during movie night (first one: Coming to America
when you’ll land special weekly-changing tapas-style dishes the owner is experimenting with (think:
chicken-liver egg rolls, crispy shrimp heads).
Yes, there is more than rice.
Sure, you’ll have signature NYC-style
chicken-and-rice covered in a secret white sauce (note: all sauces are made in-house) and its many
variations (steak, braised pork belly) before you. But there are also more adventurous routes to take:
crispy chicken hearts, Vietnamese egg rolls, and braised pork, steak and hand-pressed burger Bao
sandwiches using meat that’s been hand-cut and cured from whole animals in-house.
About that hand that’s doing the cutting...
Hailing from a local MIT-based B-boy group (which every other year organizes one of the biggest break
dancing competitions in the area), the owner holds the East Coast record for longest one-hand “freeze”
position. But that doesn’t mean he’ll head-spin your dinner over to you.
Or maybe it does.
