Location Description:

What's not to like at Nabi? The ever-changing menu rotates with the seasons, and nearly everything that chef and owner Ji Kang creates is astounding in both its uniquely pan-Asian flair and affordable prices. Standbys include an outstanding bowl of pork shoulder ramen and chili-rubbed edamame, as well as a shrimp and short rib fried rice with a bright pop of citrus. Happy hours are often the best time to go, when prices are even further reduced, and lunch specials offer a huge bang for your buck.
