Dallas’ first ramen restaurant, Tanoshii Ramen + Bar, located in historic Deep Ellum, has significantly changed its menus. The new lunch, dinner and late-night menus have launched and are fully in place this week.
Co-owner Chi Le says, “ We have grown a lot since we first opened, and now that we have more experience under our belt, we developed dishes that are more creative and elevated while still preserving classic Japanese ramen culture. Joey and I, along with our staff, will continue to evolve and push ourselves to be better.”
Opened in September of this past year, husband and wife duo, Joey and Chi Le (owners, Wicked Po’boys and Miss Chi Vietnamese), have created a vibrant free-spirited dining room and bar with a carefully developed menu dedicated to the beautiful Japanese noodle dish with an ample selection of other dishes to complement. The Le’s bring their experiences and the way they enjoy street food to Tanoshii, with making fresh ramen noodles and gyoza in-house, embracing vegan dishes that are embedded in the Asian culture, and serving late-night ramen.
Tanoshii’s recipes are meticulously developed by Chi, while Joey makes the noodles. Chi says, “Ramen is truly an art. The ramen chef and the one eating the bowl of ramen are the artists as every bowl is made differently and every bowl is eaten in each person’s own special way.”
