A well-known San Diego ramen restaurant is planning to open a seventh location this fall, this time in North Park.
Tajima – the Japanese eatery chain first established on Convoy Street – announced it will open a location at 3015 Adams Ave., near 30th Street, in early October.
The mouthwatering menu will be similar to the Tajima locations in Hillcrest and East Village – with a few new additions. Patrons can expect Japanese fare, sake and Chef Sam Morikizono’s specialty ramen dishes.
This includes the Tajima Ramen – “Tonkotsu” soup kakuni, fried garlic, chives, bean sprouts, green onion, half of a ramen egg pork chashu or chicken chashu, sesame seeds and Japanese seaweed. Also on the menu: Kakuni Buns, juicy pork belly with cucumber and house sauce in a soft bun, topped with minced mixed green & Kaiware.
The 1,500-square-foot North Park space is being designed by BASILE Studio. The company also designed Tajima’s East Village location.
In addition to expanding to North Park, Tajima recently took its ramen concept to Tijuana, opening a 500-square-foot eatery in the Plaza Rio Food Garden. Tajima will also open next month in Long Beach, California, too.
The popular eatery was founded in 2001 on Convoy Street by chef and entrepreneur Sam Morikizono. Besides Hillcrest, East Village and Convoy, Tajima also runs a location on Mercury Street.
