If you walked past The Honey Paw by chance, you’d probably think it was just another brightly-colored bar. And then you’d walk inside, hear the music, and see that they also play great vinyl. And once the door closed behind you, you’d notice that everyone inside is actually eating bowls and plates of papaya salad, noodles, and fried chicken. This sister restaurant to Eventide serves a mix of dishes from across Asia, like Vietnamese crepes and smoked lamb khao soi, along with great cocktails. Even if you don’t make it here for dinner or brunch, come by for a drink and make sure to get the caramelized honey soft serve for dessert.
