YumeWoKatare Ramen Shop Opens in Cambridge
The cozy shop, which seats about 14, is the first U.S. location opened by Japanese restaurateur Tsuyoshi Nishioka, who owns five restos in Japan.
Right now YumeWoKatare offers two types of ramen, both with pork. The "regular" ramen includes two pieces of pork ($12); the other “buta” ramen gives you five pieces of pork ($14). But Nishioka says he’ll expand the menu after the new year. The place offers counter service and takeout.
The interior is simple and casual with blue walls and some communal seating. For decor, Nishioka has guests write down their dreams and goals, frames them and hangs them on the wall, for a fee. A small-frame costs $10, and your dream hangs on the wall for a month. A larger frame costs $30 and hangs for three months. Ask about the ambitious 10-year dream plan.
The telephone number to the restaurant is being connected at present, and a website is forthcoming. The place buzzes Tuesday through Saturday, dinner only.
