All new ramen
There’s a hot new ramen restaurant now open in Orange County’s Fountain Valley, just in time for the cold winter months. Ryu Ramen is the work of chef Ryu Isobe, and focuses mostly on tonkotsu pork broth as well as mazemen brothless ramen; there’s also one vegan option, called “hipster ramen” on the menu, naturally. Current hours are 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. for now, with a grand opening slated for December 14, when Ryu will be giving away ramen to the first 100 people in line.
