A great BAR, but an even better RESTAURANT. Savory steamed dumplings along with some of the best ramen bowls in the city. Great Happy Hour specials from 4-7 PM Mon-Thurs 3-7 PM FRI (half off all draft cocktails, beer, and wine). Highly recommended as it is one of our favorites. Get there early, though. We're not the only ones who covet this place!! Psst, order the Chaplin Asian Spicy Sour (A.S.S) sounds odd, but tastes amazing!! Sandi loves extra noodles. Just a few minutes walk from your apartment.
