Fresh on the heels of their opening in LA’s Monterey Park, Ramen King Keisuke announced they’re working on plans for their next 14 restaurants in Southern California. Known as “The Biggest Ramen Chain in Singapore,” Ramen King Keisuke has at least three restaurants planned for San Diego County.
Last year What Now San Diego shared the news that Ramen King Keisuke secured their first San Diego location at Mission Valley shopping center. Fast Casual reports the ramen restaurant is also scouting Del Mar and Carlsbad to place additional restaurants.
Named after chef and acclaimed “Ramen King,” Keisuke Takeda, the brand openly selected the Los Angeles and San Diego foodie scenes for their US launch.
Takeda is the creator of 17 restaurant concepts in Singapore and won the coveted title of Ramen Champion at the 2011 Tokyo Ramen Championship competition.
Ramen King Keisuke restaurants will showcase Chef Keisuke Takeda’s extensive training in Japanese cuisine without a hefty price tag. In order to keep costs down, Ramen King Keisuke implements a “labor-lite” approach and incorporates technology like kiosks for guest orders and payment, plus sushi-making machinery.
On the menu, expect to find three featured Ramen specialties: the Tonkotsu Ramen, Spicy Tonkotsu Ramen, and Lobster Broth Ramen. Guests can indulge in their signature Tonkotsu Ramen for only $9.95.
What Now San Diego has reached out to the Ramen King Keisuke team for an update on their San Diego launch. No word yet on when the Mission Valley location plans to open. Stay updated by following their Facebook.
