What to Eat at Umi Nom, Kuma Inn’s Sister Spot, Opening Tomorrow

By

King Phojanakongs Brooklyn follow-up to Kuma Inn opens Tuesday, and we have the debut menu of Southeast-Asian small plates (below). Unlike the Lower East Side original, Umi Nom features $10 noodle dishes like Pancit Canton egg noodles with sausage, chicken, soy, and fish sauces plus a fried-rice lineup. The name Umi Nom is a play on the Tagalog verb meaning to drink, says the Feed. Unfortunately, the wine-and-beer license is forthcoming.
