Just inside the brick wall of this Lowest Greenville Avenue address the smells of simmering tonkatsu broth await you. The pork bone soup is the most commonly served and ordered soup at most ramen restaurants, but visitors to Wabi House would do well to explore the rest of the menu. Tsukemen ramen boasts no broth at all, and instead offers a small bowl of thick and savory dipping sauce. It’s messy eating, but worth every penny of that dry-cleaning bill. Don’t forget some small plates to get you warmed up as well. The sashimi is great here (the owners got their start in sushi restaurants) and the pork croquettes are good enough to warrant a second order.
