Kapow! Noodle Bar

431 Plaza Real Boca Raton, FL 33432 | Boca Raton | 561-347-7322

Location Description:

This slip of a restaurant capitalizes on a nationwide fascination with pork buns and noodles, offering a short list of greatest hits, including pho, ramen, udon noodles, steamed buns, and a variety of innards. There's much that engages the mind and the senses here and it's no wonder: Kapow was conceived by stylish restaurateurs Rodney Mayo, Scott Frielich, and Vaughan Lazar, whose ventures include Respectable Street, Dada, Tryst, and Longboards. Pork belly dominates the menu, whether it's in the sandwich or a soup garnish, and for good reason: it imparts smoky, fatty, bacony flavor. Small plates are also a staple, such as the demure shishito peppers, which every sixth one or so packs an extra punch of heat. A mural of a geisha serves as the backdrop, a journey of anime punctuated by cartoon robots and animals swimming in a painted sea. This Boca Raton spot isn't the place to take your party of six, since it's a tiny space dominated by a bar. Instead, its a destination for a date or an intimate conversation with a friend, tucked in the bar's corner or at a modest wooden table.
