A relatively new Asian fusion restaurant in Allston has closed and a new place has moved in. Wabora Prime had opened in late December 2015 at 164 Brighton Ave., but the owners quickly sold the restaurant, and with that change came a new name: Iron Kitchen. The burger- and poutine-centric menu of Wabora is gone, and the new Iron Kitchen serves a lineup of Chinese- and Japanese-inspired dishes, according to its page on Yelp.
Wabora Prime was a sister of Back Bay’s Asian fusion sushi bistro Wabora, both of which are related to a Canadian restaurant in Ontario (hence the poutine). Iron Kitchen took over the space and opened towards the end of June. The restaurant serves a simple selection of dishes, including beef, chicken, and pork options and a selection of sauces, from curry to black pepper and teriyaki, per Yelp reviews. Items like unagi rice and milk tea are also available.
The change of ownership occurred at some point in May, according to a City of Boston licensing board page that indicated the change, as Boston Restaurant Talk reported. Iron Kitchen is open from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, as well as 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday and 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.
