Japanese Ramen Bar To Land In Pacific Beach | Tokyo Miyoshi Ramen Izakaya Set To Open First U.S. Location In San Diego

September 28, 2017

First it was Jinya Ramen Bar, then Menyu Ramen Taphouse, and soon the restaurant at 825 Garnet Avenue in Pacific Beach will become Tokyo Miyoshi Ramen Izakaya, a Japanese ramen house with a focus on craft beer and sake.

Founded in the Japanese city of Kyoto, Tokyo Miyoshi Ramen Izakaya has a 40-year history of ramen-making and currently operates two locations in Japan. The menu at the Pacific Beach branch, which will be the first foreign outpost for the company, will center around ramen noodle soup, including spicy and vegan varieties, as well as an offering of Japanese tapas like dumplings, fried chicken karaage, octopus takoyaki, chashu buns and more. Behind the bar, there will be 20 taps devoted to Japanese and local craft beers and a large selection of sake.

Although Tokyo Miyoshi is a new concept, not many changes will take place to the restaurant layout, which was previously designed by Satoshi Ikedo of Solana Beach-based IKEO Designs (Sushi Ota, RakiRaki, Ototo Sushi). Like with Jinya and Menyu, the space will have an open kitchen, bar seating, a ramen counter, and an outdoor patio with heat lamps, fire tables and space for 100 people.

Tokyo Miyoshi will soft open on October 1, with a grand opening scheduled for October 7 where the first 300 guests will receive 50% off any ramen. The restaurant plans to stay open until 3am on weekend. For more information, visit ramenizakaya-tokyomiyoshi.com.
