Ramen Bar coming to 4040 Locust Street

Posted on 30 April 2012

Ramen Bar may be coming soon to the building at 4040 Locust Street.

If you are a noodle lover, this news should make you happy. Ramen Bar may be coming to the former Locust Moon Comics space at 40th and Locust Streets soon if their liquor license application gets approved. The building at 4040 Locust Street, owned by 4040 Locust Street Partners, L.P., formerly also hosted Strike Bowling Lounge, and the Redcap’s Corner gaming shop. Keswick Cycle opened at this location last year.

Foobooz reports that an ad looking for a head chef for a ramen restaurant close to the University of Pennsylvania was posted online back in January. The opening date listed in the ad was May 2012 and it looks like it could be for this restaurant. Judging by the boards covering the building, the opening may be later than May. We’ll let you know as soon as there is more information available.

    I could be a ramen restaurant chef. For goodness sake, you just add boiling water and . . . voila!

    Tim, real ramen is a completely different beast than the salt bricks you can get at the grocery store:
