Rice Burg, whose food trucks have been serving burgers sandwiched in gluten-free rice cakes everywhere from the Boston Calling music festival at Harvard University to Chinatown, will be setting up its first brick-and-mortar store in Wellesley as early as late February.
Rice Burg is slated to move into the former Yogurtology space at 552 Washington St, next to Old School Pizzeria. The space has been vacant for 2 years.
The eatery’s Asian-focused menu includes rice concoctions of all varieties, with bowls and salads among the offerings. Your burgers can include shaved steak, chicken, and vegetarian options. Yogurtology’s frozen yogurt gear was left behind and it’s possible that Jessica Shen and her Rice Burg team might take advantage of that.
Rice Burg has been around at least since mid-2015.
UPDATE: Rice Burg’s common victualler application was approved by the Board of Selectmen on Dec. 17
Anyone know an estimated opening date?
They’re hoping by end of February
