Ramen Station, the latest restaurant from Michael Lo and chef George Yu (Taiyo Ramen in Decatur, Suzy Siu’s Baos at Krog Street Market, Noona in Duluth,) is open at Larkin on Memorial Drive in Grant Park. And, for those who didn’t make it to one of the two sold out neighborhood previews or opening night, the partners just released the menu.
Like Taiyo in Decatur, Ramen Station serves baos, rice bowls, and Japanese small bites such as steamed and salted edamame and pork belly skewers, in addition to tonkotsu and spicy beef ramen. The restaurant is also offering a vegetarian ramen made with dashi broth and a lamb tsukemen or “dipping ramen,” where noodles are served separately and then dipped in a bowl of hot broth. Chef Jason Liang’s (Brush Sushi Izakaya) Japanese cafe Momonoki in Midtown includes a tsukemen on its menu served with pork belly.
Ramen comes with a choice of extra toppings, including a shoyu tamago egg, butter corn, and bulgogi beef.
The restaurant’s opening was highly anticipated by the Grant Park and nearby Cabbagetown neighborhoods. A reader tells Eater Atlanta, Lo and Yu received nearly 800 emails from people hoping to grab a seat at the preview dinners earlier this week.
Take a look at the menu:
Ramen Station currently only offers dinner. Lunch will begin in October.
The opening of Ramen Station comes on the heels of Lo and Yu’s restaurant swap — Double Dragon Chinese to Son of a Bear Korean — in Decatur’s Oakhurst neighborhood.
