Later this year, Victory Park will become home to a brand new noodle destination.

Jinya Ramen Bar, an authentic Tokyo-born ramen joint, will debut at 625 High Market Road inside a 3,000-square-foot space with a large outdoor patio. The noodle spot opened its first stateside location in California and has since expanded across Canada and the U.S. including locations in Austin and a handful in Houston.

The warmly lit interiors will serve more than 10 signature ramen dishes in pork, chicken, or vegetarian varieties with 20-plus toppings. Rice, curry bowls, and Japanese small plates will also be on offer with a robust cocktail program. Hours of operation will be Sunday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 12 a.m.; Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.

Also en route to the rapidly-growing neighborhood is Sift + Pour, a brand new bakery set to arrive at 2401 Victory Park Lane in late 2018. It will feature mini cupcakes, cake pops, brownies, macarons, and made-to-order sweet or savory crepes. The bakery will offer a full coffee and tea bar, plus wine and beer.

These forthcoming restaurants join several recent arrivals like Kent and Tracy Rathbun’s Imoto; a modern-day “saloon” Billy Can Can; candy shop It’Sugar and a new luxury movie theater, all meant to revitalize the otherwise deserted Victory Park neighborhood into a bustling commercial center akin to Lower Greenville, Deep Ellum, or even Plano’s now-enormous Legacy West development.

To that end, Victory Park will add 85,000 square feet of new retail space along with new tenants opening this year including a bar from Brooke Humphries (who’s behind this recently opened Deep Ellum honky tonk, Beauty Bar, Barcadia, and Pints & Quarts); a 24,000-square-foot restaurant and entertainment concept by Humphries and HG Sply Co’s Elias Pope; plus Tex-Mex restaurant Mesero, popsicles and other treats from Popbar, wine bar Burgundy Swine, and a restaurant from the group behind The Standard Pour and High Fives.

Stay tuned for details on when Jinya Ramen Bar and Sift + Pour will debut in Victory Park.
