Metro’s newest Japanese restaurant serves authentic noodles, tapas and delicious food
Omaha, NE (RestaurantNews.com) After three weeks of dry running in the JINYA Ramen Bar in 7010 Dodge Street Officially opened today after a short lunchtime ribbon cutting.
“We are excited. The diverse food scene and family-friendly atmosphere of Omaha make our city perfect for an authentic ramen noodle shop, ”said local owner Aaron Yang.
JINYA’s claim to fame is the palate broth: tonkotsu (pork), chicken, pork / chicken, or vegetables. Garlic lovers can make the Cha Cha Cha Ramen, a funky pork / fish broth that is always served as the chef’s specialty.
All the broth simmer in FIJI water for more than ten hours and burst with taste. Homemade noodles mature for three days. Ramen can be customized with 20+ add-ons such as Wonton Chicken and Beef Sukiyaki. Nothing about JINYA’s authentic ramen is instantaneous.
JINYA also serves rice bowls with beef, chicken, pork and sack (seafood), small plates like takoyaki squid balls, creamy shrimp tempura and spicy tuna, salmon or pork mini tacos peeled in deep fried wonton.
JINYA offers a kids menu, vegetarian and gluten-free options, a daily happy hour from 3pm to 3pm, cocktails, house sake and Nebraska craft beers.
The 76-seat, 2,800-square-foot restaurant is the first in Nebraska for the Burbank, California-based franchise owned by La Brea Dining Group founder Tomonori Takahashi. The restauranteur opened JINYA Tokyo in 2000 and grew to include six Japanese noodle houses.
In 2010, Takahashi expanded to Studio City, California, which company officials say sparked the ramen craze in LA. Omaha’s independent ramen bar is one of 33 JINYA bars in the US and Canada.
Food critics praise the kitchen, including the late Jonathan Gold, a Pulitzer Prize winner. Local guests also rave about and enjoy the chic and cozy ambience.
JINYA, # 106 7010 Dodge Street, is open daily for lunch, dinner and happy hour. (Sunday-Thursday: 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday: 11 a.m. to 10.30 p.m.)
Participants who cut ribbons were given free ramen for lunch. The owners of JINYA donate dollars to the Omaha Food Bank of the Heartland.
