Prepare to weep, ramen lovers: The building at future mega-development Sylvan Thirty that would've been home to Tei-An chef/owner Teiichi Sakurai's ramen shop Ten went up in flames over the weekend.
According to WFAA, the fire, which "may have been touched off by a construction worker doing soldering and welding," broke out around 4 p.m. Saturday; thankfully, no one was injured.
A spokesman for Sylvan Thirty told the Dallas Morning News that the affected building "was going to house a restaurant and a yoga studio." That restaurant, says Oak Cliff Advocate, was the 750 square foot, 13-seat ramen spot Ten.
Originally slated to open in May, this will no doubt set the opening back — the building will have to be torn down and rebuilt, Dallas Fire-Rescue's Captain Linda Henry tells the Morning News. Stay tuned to Sylvan Thirty's Facebook page for updates.
