Quick post. Went to The Alibi Room yesterday night for some way overdue (not the beer, but the social gathering for it) beer with Adam, Christina, Danton and Tien. You see, Adam forgot about our dinner at Houseguest and so said he’d buy us a round next time. 1 year later, here we are and of course we were met with this sign.
This is the usual now at Alibi Room….so I left my number and we headed out for some food. My first thought was for Save On Meats for a cheap and quick burger, but on the way there we saw a line up for No. 1 Noodle House and decided to try it out.
If you want a good chuckle, read the comments on the post from Scout Magazine.
Anyways. To quote, since I’m lazy.
It’s basically a big ramen joint. [...] menu will be small – just three ramens (soy, pork, maybe chicken), fried chicken wings, bao buns, salads and Banh Mi sandwiches – with a small beer, sake and spirits component.
The place will be geared towards the chefs who work on the line all night and then don’t have many options for food and drink when they clock out. No. 1 Noodle House might stay open until as late as 4am, with a capacity for 75-90 people. Guest chefs will also regularly moonlight to create specialty dishes of their own.
Right now, the concept is for a 7 month pop-up, which Brand describes as a “business incubator”. If it works, they might stay or move somewhere else. Opening day is scheduled for late April or early May.
So the menu is basically finalized, nothing is over $10, and all prices include tax. Cash only while they get their card system set up, so be prepared. read more
