While the East Side is full of bar and food truck combos, Domo Alley-Gato is shaping up to be the best - and definitely most cat-focused - one yet. There are hundreds of red and white lamps hanging from the ceiling, and more miniature cat figurines on the walls than in every grandmother’s house you’ve ever seen combined. The drinks are the main focus, like the Back Alley Punch that serves a group of four or the Oolong Island Iced Tea, an adult version of your go-to drink in college. But when you’re ready to get some food, try the ban ban dog, the O.G. wings, or the katsu curry. The food isn’t as quite as good as their Ramen Tatsuya brother/neighbor, but there definitely won’t be a line and the drinks are stronger here.
