The Japanese ramen lords Menya Kouji (150+ restaurants) have made their first North American commitment, taking a production kitchen and a restaurant in the heart of Vancouver’s Chinatown. The restaurant is going into the old East of Main location at 223 East Georgia Street (same block as Phnom Penh, Matchstick, Mamie Taylor’s). Managing Director Kaito Kaneyoshi says he hopes to have the 40 seat licensed establishment open before the end of January. Come opening day, diners can expect house-made ramen noodles in pork, chicken, or veggie broth, plus a variety of typical ancillary edibles (eg. house-made gyozas).
