Doowee and rice. Great stuff, fun menu...Some hyperbole on my part towards the end

I went yesterday for lunch. Tried the chicken heart fries and the steak baos. Chicken hearts were perfectly crisped atop well made fries and decorated with 2 different sauces. I described it to friends later that day as poutine like. The sauces were not gravy like but rich and a great accompaniment to the fries and just under the line of too salty hearts. The steak in the baos was dynamite and the crispy shallots added great crunch. These are slightly larger baos than what Myers and Chang serve (I'd say 3" vs 4", not life altering difference in size but that is 33% bigger). My preference is the 3", based on anecdotal discussions and personal experience. The 4" seem flimsier and have tended to soak through and tear/fall apart as these did. The filling in these were just as good as any in town but the bun itself did not do it justice.

When I visit the website dooweeandrice.com and read the "preamble" to the menu along with the about link and blog posts I get a real jolt of excitement for both this guy Doowee's aspirations and for the food scene here. I love eating his food, I appreciate the way he approaches all aspects of running his own restaurant and if he can sell chicken hearts in Davis/Powderhouse then we may have reached the real tipping point of living in a first rate food city.
