When all you want for lunch is something easy, plain, and kind of good for you, Rooster & Rice is your spot. Steamed rice and poached chicken or tofu comes in a compostable cardboard box (good for the earth too), along with some sauces and steamed broccoli. It’s shockingly good for being so simple, and a no-brainer for a quick takeout dinner in Cow Hollow.
