If the likes of katsu corn dogs, shoyu ramen and steamed baos filled with everything from soft shell crab to hot fried chicken whet your whistle, then look no further than this sleek, fast-casual spot within walking distance from the campus on the other side of I-75. The modern Japanese menu features around twenty different items, all of which are priced under $10. And though the baos may be the stars of the show, don't overlook the octopus fritters or the Sumo fries (shoestring potatoes topped with Miso chili, queso, onion, scallions, pickle jalapeno and nori strips). Drink options include craft cocktails, Japanese beer and even sake juice boxes. For dessert? Three words: ice cream baos. Did we mention that this place stays open until 4 a.m. on the weekends?
