Slurp $35 lobster ramen at this famed Japanese chain’s first S.F. restaurant
A famed ramen chain from Japan, which drew long lines at its first-ever U.S. location in San Mateo, is finally coming to San Francisco.
Taishoken will open its second stateside restaurant at 665 Valencia St., between 17th and 18th streets, on Thursday, Aug. 25, at 5 p.m. The new Mission District location is a “more upscale,” dinner-only affair, said CEO Yoshihiro Sakagachi, with a new lineup of dishes and sake cocktails served in a sleek, 50-seat dining room.
