There’s been a lot of chatter following the liquor license activity for ~KEN KEN RAMEN~, which will be moving into a brick-and-mortar space in the Mission (just around the corner from The Corner, where it was holding its pop-up nights). Ironically, the space was a former noodle shop, and the build-out is reportedly almost complete—look for a potential December opening. You can read all the details about the owners and the new space on Grub Street and Eater. 3378 18th St. at Mission.
Meanwhile, Tenderblog reports on ~KARE-KEN~, a Japanese curry spot due to open in the former Eden’s space. It should be opening very soon, you can track their updates on Twitter. Hours will be Tue-Sat 5:30pm-10:30pm. 552 Jones St. at Geary, 415-292-5273.
