Mei Li and her siblings Irene and Andrew Li are the co-owners of the The Mei Mei Group, a Boston-based restaurant, food truck and catering company with a focus on innovation, sustainability, and great service. Led by Chef Irene, Mei Mei’s creative Chinese-American cuisine draws upon the siblings’ multicultural heritage, combining Chinese techniques and influences with the bounty of New England farms.
Their food truck, Mei Mei Street Kitchen, opened in 2012 and was soon awarded Boston’s Best Meals on Wheels by Boston Magazine. Their brick-and-mortar restaurant opened in late 2013 and was named Eater Boston’s Restaurant of the Year. Known for their dedication to sustainable operations, employee empowerment, and ethical sourcing, including a commitment to serving only pasture-raised meat, Mei Mei has become a leader in the New England local food scene. Mei Mei has been featured by Food & Wine, Bon Appetit, Eater Boston & National, Restaurant Hospitality, Phaidon’s Where To Eat, The Boston Globe, and more.
