The best ramen in Japan is coming to Toronto
Chef Atsushi Yamamoto (Yamamoto-san) has received numerous accolades for his eight-seat Tokyo ramen stand, Konjiki Ramen. And now, it’s coming to Canada. Yamamoto-san has chosen Toronto for his first overseas outpost, according to a statement. The eatery will reportedly open in early December 2017 in Toronto’s North York neighbourhood.
I believe it's going into the spot that was occupied by South St Burger.
A couple of other things that are apparently happening:
- The Milestones that closed in Empress Walk is being replaced by California Sandwiches. They're a mini-chain in the GTA.
- The Keg's new location is mostly finished. I'll post a picture later - it looks really slick. Some similar restaurant building also seems to be going up a few blocks north of Empress Walk (I didn't get a picture when I passed that one)
- Farther north, Lowe's is going into the Centrepoint Mall's north anchor spot, which has been empty since Target's big failure in 2015.
