Ramen! Finally, we’re getting more ramen choices in Baltimore. Ejji Ramen will soon open in Belvedere Square Market at the Ikan Sushi’s former spot and they’ll serve traditional Japanese-style ramen with a Malaysian spin.
With the chilly weather on its way, Ejji (pronounced e-gee) could not come at a better time and they will have bar seating starting October 26. Ejji is Asian comfort food with an edge. According to restaurant co-owner Oscar Lee, “We will offer a choice of traditional or vegetable noodles for those looking for a gluten-free and/or carb-free option. And, our noodles come from one of the top noodle suppliers in the world.”
Ejji’s home-cooked dishes will use fresh and high quality ingredients and be sourced as locally as possible. Various toppings will be available to customize the ramen bowls, including a family recipe for Malaysian Sambal sauce, and a choice of more than 10 toppings, including menma (bamboo shoots), egg, char siu and pork belly. For hungry appetites, “Sumo Style” will offer a fully loaded ramen experience, which includes every topping they offer.
With 40 years in the Baltimore restaurant scene, the Vong-Lee family, which also owns Chocolatea Café in Tuscany-Canterbury, is excited to introduce ramen with a twist. They will use Belvedere Square as the first concept location with the goal of opening 25 locations within the U.S. by 2017. (Um, wow!) Dishes will be priced affordably starting at $9. Table seating it expected to open in early November with take-out ability to follow shortly thereafter.
Ejji will follow Belvedere Square Market’s hours of operation which are:
Monday – Thursday 10am – 8pm,
Friday – Saturday 10am – 10pm
Sunday 10am – 5pm.
