Sushiya & Ototo Sushi Owner To Bring Noodles To Normal Heights | Former Burnside Sandwich Spot To Become Nozaru Ramen

March 21, 2017

It seems like a new ramen shop pops up in San Diego every week! The space at 3375 Adams Avenue in Normal Heights that most recently housed Burnside sandwich shop will soon become Nozaru Ramen, a noodle house and sushi eatery from the owner of Sushiya and Ototo Sushi Co.

Owned by Hiroshi Toukairin, who also runs the Sushiya in Liberty Station and Ototo Sushi Co. in Clairemont (with another opening soon in Del Sur Town Center in Carmel Valley), Nozaru Ramen will offer a selection of tonkotsu ramen noodle soups, including veggie options, as well as Japanese plates like yakisoba noodles, chicken teryaki, ginger pork, gyoza, hamachi kama, tempura, and crispy calamari, as well as a selection of sushi rolls and nigiri. The restaurant will also have a menu of Japanese & craft beer, wine and sake.

Nozaru Ramen is anticipated to swing open in April, just in time for Adams Avenue Unplugged on Saturday, April 29. Find Nozaru Ramen online at
