This Charlie Chaplin-themed bar, featuring a movie poster-style mural of the man himself, serves inventive drinks from the Wilder Cocktail Brothers alongside a large selection of ramen and dumplings. Two solid choices the Chaplin A.S.S. bowl, which brings together Asian spicy sour chicken, scallions, lemongrass, coconut milk, red chili paste, and pork butt, and, on the dumplings side, the chicken & shrimp shumai with water chestnut, garlic, onion, and oyster sauce.
Chaplin’s may be best known for cocktails and dumplings, but they also have a complete ramen selection waiting to soak up a night of drinking in the always buzzing Shaw neighborhood. The standard-issue bowl is made with pork belly and tonkotsu, but vegetarians and vegans have choices as well, like miso and shio broths. We're in favor of the Chaplin A.S.S. bowl, which combines Asian spicy sour chicken, scallions, lemongrass, coconut milk, red chili paste, and pork butt. There’s also the option to add extra ingredients like pork butt and even gyoza... and who has the power to say no to dumplings on top of ramen?
