Ramen has finally made it to Dallas.
Tanoshii Ramen + Bar will be opening its doors Sept. 24 in Deep Ellum, according to a release. The husband and wife duo of Joey and Chi Le are the owners of the new restaurant, which claims to be the very first to open in the city.
What makes this ramen shop unique (besides the fact that it claims to be the only one in the city) is the fact that the noodles will be made in-house and late night ramen hot pots will be served until 3 in the morning on Fridays and Saturdays. The menu will also include vegan items, as well as curry and tonkatsu ramen.
The restaurant’s décor is modern and casual, with fabric lampshades and a community table in the middle of the venue. The brick walls and wooden furniture give the restaurant a rustic and cozy vibe.
In Japanese, Tanoshii means “joyful.” Dallas folks should certainly be joyful that ramen will finally be available in their city, just in time for the cooler months.
