This week, Sumo Shack will prepare to open its doors in the former Bahn Shop space on SMU Boulevard.

The brand new spot is a concept from the minds behind wildly popular Lower Greenville ramen shop Wabi House, and Sumo Shack will bring those beloved noodles and Japanese hot dogs to a brand new neighborhood. But the restaurant is primarily looking to be a destination for bao, the fluffy Japanese steam buns that will be stuffed with everything from pork belly to Nashville-style hot chicken, even red bean and green tea ice cream.

Sumo Shack has plans to keep the doors open until 4 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, which will help satisfy the city’s late-night cravings for buns and noodles. Sumo Shack will kick open the doors for a soft opening on Thursday, May 4, and will be officially open on Saturday, May 6 for regular business hours.
