The recent ramen boom is days away from landing on Fulton Market. Ramen Takeya, from the owners of the popular Logan Square Japanese spot Wasabi, is planning to soft-open on March 25 and grand-open on March 31. It was originally slated to open in June 2014. [UPDATE: The soft opening will only last two days, March 25 and 26, and will only serve a limited menu. It will open at 6 p.m. on those days and close when food runs out. Full service will begin on March 31. UPDATE 2: The soft opening will be delayed a day or two.]

Expanding on Wasabi's line-inducing ramen, Ramen Takeya will specialize in chicken paitan-based ramen, which is described as "thin, straight noodles topped by char siu or roasted pork" with "lighter, milk-colored broth made mostly from the bones of free-range chickens" in a release. Shoyu, naruto and a vegetarian ramen will also be available, in addition to house-made spring rolls, gyoza, salad, and small rice bowls with barbecue beef or chicken. Beverages will include a cocktail program.

Situated between the second Cemitas Puebla and Publican Quality Meats, Ramen Takeya holds 40-or-so seats, a ramen bar, and custom furniture in an attempt to bring a traditional ramen spot to a ballooning stretch of Fulton Market that also includes The PublicanThe Betty, and the forthcoming Duck Duck Goat on the next block. More to come.
