We're all about that spontaneous takeout life. Only problem is, you gotta wait 46 minutes drinking mudslides at Chili's while your mozzarella-stuffed lamb bladders crisp to the perfect snap. That's just awful. This is why we almost always defer to Michi Ramen for impromptu dinners, as it boasts the most woke beer wall in Austin with only eight taps. This soup wonderland features oft-rotating, limited distribution, specialty craft treats like Sputnik from Austin Beerworks, Dapper Devil from Blue Owl, and Cucumber Face Mask by Oasis. They also tend to get hard-to-find out-of-towners like Houston's Brash Brewing and San Antonio's Freetail while also curating a fine selection of Japanese beers. It'll make you wish that they'd slow it down a bit back there in the kitchen.
