Today you’re just going to read about it.
But soon you’re going to visit Wabi House, a low-lit izakaya serving ramen, small plates and good drinks, soft-opening next Wednesday and grand-opening on June 27.
You’ll like it here. Because inside it’s all dim and cozy (here’s the proof), with lots of recycled wood, exposed bulbs and two-person booths. So bring someone who’s good company in small spaces and summon a couple drinks. Beer and sake works. Or you could try something that’s a little more rye-strawberry-shiso in nature.
Then you’ll want to begin working your way through the menu. A bowl of tonkotsu ramen is a requirement. See, the broth is cooked for 18 hours, and it’s loaded with chashu pork, black-garlic oil and a marinated egg. That’ll set you right. Especially when you eat it alongside some hamachi carpaccio and a plate of crispy pig ears. You’re just full of good decisions.
Oh, this part’s especially important. They’re staying open until 4am on Fridays and Saturdays, which means you’ll have plenty of time to slurp noodles after the bars close.
Which is far better than going to bed.
