Wabi House Ramen Opens June 27

Wabi House, Ramen

by Steven Doyle

Look for a new ramen hot spot opening 11 am on Saturday, June 27, 2015 at 1802 Greenville Avenue. Wabi House will have a  menu curated with several types of ramen including a vegetarian option and tonkatsu ramen where Chef Nguyen braises the chashu pork for four hours, and cooks his broth for a total of 18 hours. The soup is studded with corn, wood-ear mushrooms, marinated egg, black garlic oil and sliced scallions. Wabi House will also serve a variety of small plates.   

Wabi comes from the word Wabi-Sabi.  Wabi-Sabi is a Japanese world view embracing and accepting the beauty in the imperfection (Wabi) & the beauty that comes with age (Sabi).  This Japanese view best describes what to expect of Chef Dien Nguyen’s restaurant location choice, concept and style of cooking.


Wabi House was built on Chef Nguyen’s love for Japanese food and obsession for ramen, inspired by his foodie experiences and culinary training in major cities like NYC, Toronto, Vancouver, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle.  For the past decade, Chef Nguyen has worked with Piranha Killer Sushi and currently holds the Corporate Head Chef position for Piranha Killer Sushi. He’s lead the opening of the new locations and oversees the seven Piranha locations in Texas.

Wabi House will have late night weekend hours, serving from 11am to 4am Friday and Saturday, 11am to midnight on Thursday, and 11am to 10pm Sunday through Wednesday.
