Miami’s ramen drought may just be over. The popular Asian noodle dish is the star of the now open Ichimi Coral Gables.
Housed in the former Bread & Butter space 2330 Salzedo Street, it uses "authentic noodle-making machines" that are imported from Japan with ramen three ways – a traditional presentation of ramen submerged in various broths; Tsukemen, or dipping style, with hot broths served with a side of cold ramen for dipping; and cold ramen with a salad-like execution.
It features modern spins on ramen like variations filled with seafood, veggies, and even one with a spin on the classic Italian dish, carbonara. Also filling up the menu are items like crispy pig ears, pork belly buns, scallion pancakes, fried oysters and gyoza made with beef, seafood, pork and vegetables.
Ichimi Coral Gables will be open for lunch weekly (starting tomorrow) from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dinner will be served Monday and Tuesday, 6 p.m. to midnight; Wednesday and Thursday, 6 p.m. to 1 a.m.; Friday and Saturday, 6 p.m. to 2 a.m.; Sunday, 6 p.m. to 11:30p.m. For more information call 305-960-7016.
