A few cocktails at a bar, two beers at the bar across the street, followed by a shot on the patio a couple doors down.
Yep, that’s pretty much our routine when we go out in the Lowest Greenville neighborhood, whether it’s a Tuesday afternoon or a Saturday night with friends. And it usually ends with an order of chicken fajita nachos and a few flour tortillas at Taco Cabana.
But that’s all about to change when Wabi House opens tomorrow night.
The new home to delectable small plates like hama rayu (hamachi, hot chili oil, mustard vinaigrette, cilantro, scallions and sesame seeds) and karage (crispy dark meat chicken pieces served with pickled watermelon, shishito pepper and a spicy aioli) is going to be our new go-to late-night eatery.
Those are great to share, but you’ll want to hover over your own bowl of their house specialty: ramen. Made with broth cooked for 18 hours by Chef Dien Nguyen and filled with noodles created from his own secret recipe, his ramen is a magical, warm elixir for curing that hangover long before it starts.
For now, Wabi House is only open until midnight while they await a permit to stay open and serve food until 4 a.m.
Because man can not live on late-night tacos alone.
Grand opening, June 27
Ramen Hour: 11:00 p.m. to midnight until July 31, 2015. All ramen options $10.
