Alan Su expands his string of Japanese eateries Thursday as he and a partner soft-open Nom Nom Bowl, a fast-casual spot focused on ramen, sushi, and combinations thereof at 1608 Sansom St., which last housed Seattle Teriyaki. It’s a smaller offshoot of Nom Nom Bowl in University City.
Su and chef Jay Niyma (ex-Neta NYC, Blue Ribbon) are offering rice bowls, salad bowls, Bak buns, and mazeman (mixed noodles with various proteins, including ribeye steak, miso cod, roasted chicken with onsen tomago, and pork toroniku). Ice cream buns sandwiched between dokoyaki are on the way for dessert.
For now, Nom Nom Bowl is open for lunch only and is accepting cash only.
