Yes, I am a planner. I keep a date book. I arrive early for appointments. I like to be strategic in the aisles at the grocery store. Gearing up for the Eat Boutique Boston Holiday Market means one thing for me: plot my course of action through Cruiseport Boston early so I don’t miss a single morsel of small batch goodness, from makers to wine tasting to book signings or one moment of Maggie sharing her food gifting wisdom.
What I don’t have to plan for is lunch. Eat Boutique, it seems, has thought of everything.
Popular Boston food truck Mei Mei Street Kitchen will be parked at the event selling hot savory food. In case you haven’t already caught this notable mobile eatery around town, here’s a quick run down of what you can anticipate from their market menu.
Mei Mei Street Kitchen serves locally sourced Chinese-American fare like scallion pancake sandwiches stuffed with pesto, cheddar and slow poached-then-fried eggs or meatloaf and potato salad. 24 Karat Soup and a kale salad have been recent truck staples, but the menu changes daily based on the season and what the local farmers are growing.
After you buy lunch, you better get back to it, there’s a lot more market to enjoy!
Can’t make it to the holiday market this year? Don’t despair! You can enjoy many of the same products from the comfort of your own home. Start shopping now!
