Williamsburg's Ramen Yebisu Opening Second Location on Seventh Avenue

Ramen Yebisu, the popular Sapporo-style ramen shop on North 6th Street in Williamsburg, will be opening its second location at 52 Seventh Avenue, between St. Johns and Lincoln. Temporary signage has gone up on the storefront, and a manager at the Williamsburg location confirmed that this will indeed be the same restaurant.

As opposed to pork-based tonkotsu ramen, which is by far the most popular style around these parts, Sapporo-style ramen (from Japan's northermost island, Hokkaido) involves a seafood-based stock. Other varieties available include miso-based ramen, shoyu (soy sauce-based) ramen, and shio (salt-based) ramen. Noodles are slightly larger and chewier than with pork-based (Hakata-style) ramen, and other options include chicken ramen, vegetarian miso ramen, and spicy ramen. A popular specialty is abura soba, soup-free noodles topped with a rich soy-based sauce.

The shop first started as a hugely successful stall at Williamsburg's Smorgasburg food fair, and Yelp reviews are largely positive. Along with hidden gem Sushi Katsuei further up the avenue and the East Village's Wasan opening on Bergen, this neighborhood is seriously upping its Japanese restaurant game.

One of the better ramen places in the city.

This should do very well.

If you don't know about Sushi Katsuei, you should. Best sushi in Brooklyn.
