Santouka Ramen, a Japanese company that previously made its Boston expansion dreams known, has found a location. Based on licensing hearing information, Boston Restaurant Talk reports that Santouka will open at 1 Bow Street in Harvard Square, which used to be a Dunkin' Donuts.
Santouka popped up at Itadaki in Back Bay for a few days earlier this year, serving a simple shio broth-based ramen. The company's CEO, Shinichi Kikuta, came to town for the event and was surprised to find the high prices of ramen in Boston. "It should be a cheap comfort food for you to have with a beer after a long day," he told Eater.
