There’s a new ramen spot opening in Vancouver next month and big surprise, it’s replacing another ramen place that recently shuttered.
The new eatery, Ramen Raijin, will be opening at 401 West Broadway in the former home of Menya Ramen. Menya was a long-time fixture in Mount Pleasant and it closed on May 31 after their chef and owner decided to retire.
So out with the old and in with the new. Ramen Raijin, which is owned by the Zakkushi Group, (the same folks that brought you Ramen Raijin Express and J Crêpe – aka the ramen crêpe place) already operates a Raijin location in Burnaby at 5278 Kingsway.
This will be the second spot for this concept in BC, but the third in Canada as there is also a location in Toronto.
The Zakushi Group to Daily Hive that the 32-seat West Broadway ramen shop will have the same style of ramen as the Burnaby location, but a different concept.
Patrons can expect offerings like light chicken broth ramen, Nagoya-style Japanese chicken wings, along with a special summer beer promotion with Sapporo.
This Ramen Raijin location is expected to open at the end of July.
Address: 401 West Broadway, Vancouver
