JINYA Ramen Bar, a key player in sparking the Ramen Revolution in Los Angeles, currently has multiple locations across the United States, as well as throughout Canada. This will be the restaurant’s third location in the D.C. Metropolitan area.
“We are so excited to bring JINYA to North Bethesda’s Pike & Rose,” remarked JINYARamen Bar’s Sam Shoja. “We absolutely love the neighboring area’s strong sense of community and everything that Pike & Rose has to offer. Pike & Rose has quickly become Montgomery County’s premier destination for entertainment, dining, shopping, living, and working, and we look forward to being part of this growing, vibrant community.”
Inspired by JINYA Ramen Bar’s founder Tomonori Takahashi’s experiences with both Western and Eastern cultures, JINYA Ramen Bar specializes in authentic Tonkotsu ramen (heavily pork-influenced broth), boasting bold flavors and a wide variety of customizable options for the American palate. In fact, the intricate food preparation process includes simmering the broth for over 10 hours, delivering a robust, flavorful experience in perfect balance with handmade noodles.
Guests can expect a wonderful dining experience with JINYA Ramen Bar’s expansive menu offering something for everyone. Notably, JINYA Ramen Bar offers five broths, as well as different tares and oils that alter the flavor profile of each dish. With over 25 different toppings to play with, guests are able to personalize their experience. In addition to Tonkotsu ramen, JINYA Ramen Bar offers dishes such as the Spicy Chicken Ramen, Slurp Up Cilantro Ramen, Old Skool Ramen, Spicy Creamy Vegan Ramen, the “Cha Cha Cha” for garlic lovers, quinoa salads, various rice bowls, small plates, and mini tacos, to name a few. Moreover, guests can pair their dishes with a selection from the beverage program, including local craft beers; Japanese-inspired cocktails; whiskeys; sake/wine; and seasonal, house-made, non-alcoholic beverages.
JINYA Ramen Bar’s space will boast seating for up to 74 guests (including a 10-seat full bar) and outdoor patio seating for an additional 34. JINYA Ramen Bar will open daily for lunch, dinner, and happy hour.
