JINYA Ramen Bar has unveiled its menu for its Chicago location, set to open sometime next month in Lincoln Park. They've taken over the former 2 Sparrows spot, giving Chicago a dose of the Los Angeles-based chain that has seven locations in California, two in Texas and one each in Bellevue, Wash., and Las Vegas. There's also a Vancouver location.
The menu shows three versions of the tonkotsu, the pork broth often used as the measuring stick for a ramen shop. It comes in black and white versions, as well as assari (light) with thick noodles. There's also chicken and veggie ramen options. Don't worry, fake ramen shop spotters, JINYA serves gyoza. There's also Japanese fried chicken and rice bowls available, plus french fries with truffle ketchup.
Ownership previously said they plan on opening either June or July at 553 W. Diversey Ave., but feel next month is a better possibility. They weren't immediately reached for an update, but keep it here for further word. Meanwhile, check out the menus below.
