A report from Eater has the news that chef Kevin Chen, who previously worked at Umami, Ebisu, and Okazu Ya, and his business partner, Judy Chen, have opened a new restaurant in the Inner Richmond. It’s called ~KAIJU EATS~ and serves a creative spin on Japanese food. The pint-sized space offers ramen in interesting combinations, including a Mongolian beef ramen and a coconut shoyu ramen, as well as a broad selection of clam dishes, chicken wings, and sushi rolls. Hours are daily 12pm-3pm and 5pm-9pm, though they sometimes close early if they run out of items. 3409 Geary Blvd. at Beaumont, 415-742-4309.
Just a quick reminder: ~FLOUR + WATER~ is celebrating their fifth anniversary on May 15th, and will be be closed from May 7th-14th for a few updates in their space. They’ll be reopening on the 15th, with a new coat of paint and some new art pieces. Happy Birthday!
