Eat Me: Crab Fat Caramel Wings at Hot Joy in San Antonio

hot joy4by Steven Doyle

One of the greatest late night meals I have experienced in a long time was after a party in the King William District in San Antonio. It was nearing 1am and I had a hunger that only food would cure. Fortunately for me, there was a beacon that cried out in the night, not too unlike a blazing holy grail, and it lead me to the path of Hot Joy.

Hot Joy is all about the funkiness. The decor is cheesy Asian resell, the drinks are blow-me-down crazy good. The food, well the food is a blend of fusion that may have lost its way, but in a good sense of deliciousness. Here you will find a bowl of ramen such as the Double Miso with its shitake sofrito, burnt garlic oil,baby corn and soft egg that is ever so delicious. Get it further un-vegetarian-ized by adding pork belly for an extra 4 bucks. They also make a more traditional Tonkotsu ramen.  Continue reading

ramenby Steven Doyle

Teiichi Sakurai, owner of the illustrious Tei An in One Arts Plaza, has planned to open his tiny ramen shop in the new Sylvan|Thirty project in West Dallas for some time now. The 750 square foot restaurant will seat 13 guests, and will be designed by Hatsumi Kuzuu, the same talent behind such spots as FT33 in Dallas.

The restaurant, which will be called Ten, was on the fast track to already be open for business but was delayed due to a fire which gutted the new building back in March of this year. We now catch word that the delay will have diners waiting for Sakurai’s promised $10 bowl of ramen until January of 2015.    Continue reading
