One of Vancouver's top ramen restaurants set to open third location

The award-winning ramen joint has revealed they'll soon have three restaurants in Vancouver
Ramen Danbo, which first launched in Vancouver in 2015, is opening its third location in the city in 2023.

Vancouver's award-winning Ramen Danbo has fans of the Japanese noodle soup abuzz with its recent revelation the restaurant will soon have a third location.

Ramen Danbo is set to open this year at 2277 W 41st Ave in Kerrisdale. 

The new outpost of the popular ramen joint is replacing Sofra Mediterranean Kitchen, which had been there for about a decade.

The first Danbo ramen restaurant opened in Japan just over 20 years ago, however the chain's first locations outside of its home country were the two Vancouver locations - the first of which, at 1833 West 4th Ave in Kitsilano, opened in spring 2015. The restaurant was immediately acclaimed for its ramen, and consistently draws line-ups for seats, as does its second branch on Robson Street.

Danbo is known for its Fukuoka-style tonkotsu (pork broth) ramen crafted in the Kyushu Hakata style, served with thin noodles, however, the restaurant has earned widespread praise for its plant-based ramen, catching the attention of activist group PETA for its vegan offering.

No date has been set yet for the launch of Ramen Danbo's third location; signage outside the Kerrisdale restaurant indicates "opening soon."
