HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — After a brief stint as a fro-yo joint, a West End restaurant space is turning Japanese, while a planned Short Pump restaurant now has a name.
Takara Ramen opened for business Oct. 10 at 9468 W. Broad St., according to owner Kim Song.
The eatery is located in a small strip center in front of the Kroger and Lowes Home Improvement store along West Broad Street in Henrico County.
Takara’s space was previously occupied by a short-lived TCBY frozen yogurt shop.
With more than 40 seats spread throughout the nearly 1,860-square-foot establishment, Takara Ramen specializes in a number of ramen bowl entrees and appetizers. The restaurant also has a bar and outdoor patio space for patrons.
