TAIPEI (Taiwan News) -- Ichiran Ramen, one of the leading noodle restaurant chains in Japan, announced Friday that its first Taipei restaurant will be open on June 15 and will operate 24 hours every day.
The first Ichiran Ramen restaurant in Taiwan will be on Songren Road in Taipei's Xinyi District, a location that already hosts a cluster of other Japanese ramen restaurants.
The price for its best selling ramen Tonkotsu ramen will be NT$288 (US$9.5), additional noodles for NT$25 (US$0.8).
