Iron Chef and James Beard Awarding winning chef Jose Garces has opened Yuboka, a new restaurant at Revel in Atlantic City. Yuboka serves dim-sum, Asian-inspired small plates, and bowls of noodle soup. The 36-seat noodle bar, right next to Amada on the casino floor, is designed for a quick, cheap meal and takeout for lunch, dinner, and late-night dining. Highlights include chicken wings with spicy garlic-ginger sauce; a lamb burger; seafood noodle soup with poached shrimp, crab, Taiwanese barbecue sauce, crispy shallot, and udon noodles; and dumplings, some of which will be brought in from Philadelphia’s Dim Sum Garden. The restaurant will also serve cocktails, beer, wine, sake, and tea.
Garces is also bringing his Distrito Cantina Food Truck (formerly Guapo’s Tacos) to the boardwalk at Revel Beach. Every Saturday and Sunday from Memorial Day through Labor Day from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m., the truck will be serving up Garces’ Mexican bites for beach-goers to enjoy.
