Rice Box started off as a wildly popular food truck serving the Montrose nightlife and University of Houston students for lunch. But owner John Peterson recently created a brick-and-mortar location in Upper Kirby’s Greenway Plaza food court to compliment their signature on-the-go meals.
The quaint location includes 80 Chinese lanterns against a crimson wall with barstool seating and video panels to watch sports games. Rice Box’s menu includes many of its food truck favorites like Kung Pao chicken with rice and egg roll, but also showcases a custom tea bar and extended menu of Indian and Thai curries.
Rice Box is open Monday through Friday 11 am – 3 pm with nights in Montrose and lunches at University of Houston.
