Sure it's sad that Powderhouse Square neighborhood favorite East Asia shuttered last week, but boy does its replacement have a fun name. The Davis Square LiveJournal announced that a new venture called DooWee & Rice is coming to the space and will feature "gourmet modern rice plates, Chinese 'burgers,' and fresh Vietnamese salads." The DooWee & Rice Facebook page and website say the restaurant is "a small fusion test kitchen" and that it plans to open in August. Apparently, the restaurant has offered a preview of its food at Wonder Bar in Allston. As you can see from the photo, the T-shirts are ready to roll. DooWee also shares several other delightful tidbits about what to expect and where the name comes from.
In its own words:
· "My name is DooWee (duy) and I am a young chef with big dreams!"
· "Good heart warming food from various regions of the U.S."
· "Our mission is to bring you all cuisine I have been fortunate enough to try from all over the U.S. and even overseas."
· "My interpretation of NY Halal chicken and rice, refined through many failed experiments and tons of stress. I'm proud to share it!"
