Los Angeles-born ramen chain Silverlake Ramen will soon become part of Las Vegas’s robust ramen-restaurant community. In addition to being announced on the chain’s website (“COMING SOON”), plans for a Las Vegas location came up in work permit paperwork submitted this autumn, which gave a $200,000 contract valuation for an “interior tenant improvement of an existing gray shell space for a new ‘Silverlake Ramen’” at 3455 Arville St.
“From the fabric of the streets to the kitchens in our homes, Silverlake Ramen is crafted to feed the soul,” reads the brand’s website. “Our environment is designed to mix street-inspired visual twists with rave-worthy flavors sure to satisfy every family member. We encourage our guests to boldly slurp away.”
Silverlake’s ramen choices include The Blaze Ramen (Spicy creamy pork broth, bean sprouts, spinach, green onion, seaweed, and seasoned egg; choice of pork, chicken, or tofu) and The Garlic Truffle Ramen (A blend of creamy pork and vegetable broth, garlic, truffle oil, kale, mushrooms, black pepper, seaweed, and seasoned egg; choice of pork, chicken, or tofu; served with thick noodles). The menu also features a selection of bowls, including the Chicken Karaage Bowl, with Japanese style fried chicken and the Mabo Tofu Bowl, a spicy vegetarian dish featuring tofu and mushroom in a spicy black bean sauce.
Behind Silverlake Ramen Las Vegas LLC is restaurateur Jae Chang. Chang is also behind Las Vegas’s Gen Korean BBQ locations. What Now reached out to Chang earlier this week. Chang confirmed the news of a Las Vegas location but declined to comment on it.
