Noodles are on their way to The Heights. Jinya Ramen is moving into Braun Enterprise’s Heights Waterworks project, Houston Culturemap reports, the same development that will soon be home to Hopdoddy, Common Bond, and Ripe Cuisine. There’s no timeline on the opening quite yet.
It’s part of a wave of expansion for Jinya Ramen Bar, a Tokyo-based noodle chain with locations across the country. “Our point is to open enough Jinyas so that all customers in Houston have one close by without having to drive to Midtown,” Jim Wang, Jinya’s Houston franchisee, told CultureMap.
Besides its Midtown location, there’s are restaurants in Katy, near Nasa, and plans to open outposts in Springwoods Village, the Champions area, Cypress, and Barker Cypress.
Jinya Ramen Bar sued three Houston restaurants for copyright and trade dress infringement in January.
