LA-flavored ramen

August 1, 2018

After hearing from a friend who lives in Detroit that there were no good ramen places in the area, Urban Ramen owner Kohei Robert Kayano decided to bring his Los Angeles-based restaurant to the mitten. Right now, the 1,200-square-foot restaurant – which is located at 4206 Woodward Avenue in Detroit near the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) and opened in late June – is only offering dinner Monday through Saturday, but Kayano wants to be open for lunch by August. Their menu offers chicken paitan ramen, tonkotsu ramen (which has a pork broth), and a vegan ramen, as well as a few other dishes. Naturally, their focus is on the ramen, though. “That’s our speciality, I think. We have a noodle every day, and the broth every day, we make from scratch in house,” he said. “I want the people in Detroit to know that this is authentic, Japanese ramen.”
