Bottlecraft Little Italy Collaborates With Neighbor RakiRaki Ramen For Food Service
Bottlecraft Little Italy, the beer shop and tasting room with hard-to-find beers from around the world, has started a new snack menu in the form of a collaboration with next door neighbor, RakiRaki Ramen.
New Bottlecraft Snack Menu
RakiRaki was founded in 2012 by Tokyo native Junya Watanabe, who came to the United States as a teen and pursued his education at UCLA where he received a Master’s degree in Economics.
The ghost kitchen concept from this RakiRaki location has exclusive menu items made for patrons of Bottlecraft. The new Bottlecraft Snack Menu features the following:
Fried chicken sliders | Crispy chicken with pickled red onion, cilantro and chimichurri on a warm pretzel bun ($12)
Pork belly sliders | Fried pork belly glazed in rib sauce with creamy goma slaw on a warm pretzel bun ($12)
Pork & chive potstickers | Crispy pork potstickers (3 pieces) with a side of ponzu sauce ($8)
Crispy chicken nuggets | Crispy chicken bites (3 pieces) with a side of spicy mayo and ponzu ($8)
Brussels sprouts | Crispy brussels sprouts tossed in a house gravy, topped with sweet wasabi aioli, garnished with chili threads ($8)
Garlic edamame | Sizzled garlic edamame with Japanese red pepper ($8)
French fries | Tossed with sea salt or a spicy chili pepper mix, served with a vegetarian aioli ($6)
See you there
Bottlecraft Little Italy is the original location for the Southern California concept. There are 24 beers on tap and hundreds of bottles available to drink in or take to go. Wine, cider, and kombucha are also available on draft and in bottles to go.
Bottlecraft is dog friendly and open daily at 12PM. Closing time is 10PM, Sunday – Thursday and 12AM, Friday and Saturday. It’s located at 2252 India Street.
Don’t forget, every Tuesday during the summer from 4PM–7PM is TAPpy Hour with 10% of all draft pours being donated to The Animal Pad, a non-profit, all-breed dog rescue.
See you there, San Diego!
