Oni Ramen, one of Fort Worth’s favorite destinations for a steaming bowl of broth and noodles, is officially headed to Dallas.
The restaurant from Chef Jesus Garcia is set to open its second outpost at 2822 Elm Street, reports CultureMap. The first location of Oni Ramen on this side of town was originally slated to open at Richardson’s CityLine development, but that spot never worked out.
Instead, Garcia will bring his seven different types of ramen, ranging from tonkotsu to tsukemen, and sushi to the space on Elm near Cafe Brazil. Like the Fort Worth location, Oni Ramen is expected to stay open until 4 a.m., bringing yet another late-night dining option to Deep Ellum.
Garcia originally opened Oni Ramen at 2801 West 7th in 2016, in a space that formerly housed Kin Kin Urban Thai. Before opening his own restaurant, Garcia worked in some of DFW’s best sushi establishments, including Fort Worth’s Little Lilly Sushi and Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck.
Oni Ramen is expected to make its Dallas debut this summer, likely sometime before August. In the meantime, hit up one of the city’s currently-open options for a killer bowl of ramen.
