Kapow! Noodle Bar in Boca's Mizner Park

I checked this place out for lunch last Saturday during the Sunshine Blues Fest and really liked it. It's a small, narrow place with an inside/outside combo bar, tables inside, and a few tables outside.

I ordered Shishitou peppers ($8) stuffed with cheese and crabmeat then lightly tempura battered (and I mean lightly battered) and fried. These were awesome and I have never had shishitou peppers before. These are not hot at all but one of them had a bit of heat in it. They are served with a sweet & sour dipping sauce.

I also had an order of Vietnamese chicken wings ($9.50) which were perfectly fried. The bbq hoison at the bar went well on them. I also had a double espresso that was made from the dreaded pre packaged pods and the bill was right at $22. The Korean sliders looked real good. I will be back if in the area for lunch or dinner.

  1. We have been there a number of times and have always had a very good meal.

    1. The happy hour is great. I had those peppers for maybe $4.

      1. I see you went a while ago to Kapow, I love ramen and finally got the chance to give it a try. We sat at the bar. It was hot, sticky and for an out of season Saturday night, hopping.
        I wanted the roast pork ramen, but they were out of roast pork at 7pm, so i had the chicken ramen. it was ok. ramen, slightly overcooked, a little too much fish sauce and the chicken was somewhat dry and bland, but acceptable. We also had an order of shrimp tempura (very good) and tuna poke. We each had 2 beers. $75 incl tax & tip. Happy hour $4 app's sounds like a good deal.

        You seem in the know....Any rec's for another ramen/dumpling place in PBC?

          I really don't know of any dumpling places except Grand Lakes, which I cannot recommend. Service can be below average and the interior adds nothing. Maybe someone else can suggest a place for you,
