Ippudo Ramen Chain from Japan Expands to the Bay Area
Remember the infamous San Francisco ramen festival? Let me remind you, there were many folks I knew who waited 5 hours for a bowl of ramen.
As you know, demand for ramen in the San Francisco Bay Area has spurred the rise in ramen shops. To satiate people’s craving for ramen, Japanese ramen chains such as Mensho have expanded business to San Francisco. Soon enough, Mensho will not be the only ramen chain from Japan that has opened its doors in the San Francisco Bay Area.
However, did you know there are plans for Ippudo to open in San Francisco?! Let's cross our fingers for Ippudo to open in the heart of San Francisco by next year! I've got my chopsticks ready. 😄 (Source: 7x7)
Let's hope these Japanese ramen chains keep their Japan quality standards. My mouth is watering as we speak. Cannot wait for authentic ramen without flying to Japan (or New York)!
