Some of our team members refer to the hip-stir as “trendy, unique, with a big city feel” and “boujee, but comfy and welcoming”.
And, they have a great happy hour featuring 2-for-1’s every day (7 days a week) from 3:00 – 6:00 pm on all cocktails, beer, and wine!
While we were there, some of the items that we enjoyed were:
- Thai Parmesan Mussels
- Pork Belly Steam Buns
- Seasoned Edamame
- Harissa Cauliflower & Shishita
- Baked Cheese
- Bougie Waffle Fries
- Creole Shrimp
Now, let me tell you, these appetizers were top-notch! Each appetizer was bursting with flavor, was aesthetically pleasing to look at, and had everyone asking for more!
As a frequent visitor of the hip-stir or frequent Door Dash delivery customer of the hip-stir, I’d strongly have to suggest:
- Brown Butter Scallops
My mouth is actually watering looking at this picture. These scallops are hands down the best! Seriously, words can’t even describe this dish – from mushrooms to sweet potatoes, a herb-arugula sauce, and herbs, this entree gets my #1 vote every single time!
- Soup Du Jour (ANY and ALL of them)
In fact, I’m typically the crazy one alternating between sending them a message on Facebook or calling them to find out the Soup Du Jour they have… because they are so dang tasty!
- Seasoned Edamame
I honestly can’t even compare this edamame to anything I’ve ever had before — it’s literally amazing. It has the perfect amount of flavor and comes with an incredible dipping sauce, called Kimchi, making this appetizer my absolute favorite! Not to mention, even our two-year-old is obsessed!
It doesn’t matter what you decide to get, we are sure you will enjoy anything you try from the hip-stir. Thank you to the hip-stir for hosting our group!
