WEST LOOP — After opening to dinner crowds in March, Ramen Takeya is now serving up lunch in Fulton Market.

The owners behind Wasabi in Logan Square opened the new West Loop ramen restaurant at 819 W. Fulton Market this spring. The ramen spot has also added new dishes to its menu.

At Ramen Takeya, chef Satoko Takeyama and partner Jee H. Kim are serving up authentic Japanese ramen with a chicken paitan base. The lighter, milk-color ramen broth is made from the bones of free-range chickens fed an all-vegetarian diet.

A chicken-based ramen broth was a top request with many of Chef Takeyama's Logan Square customers, she said. Wasabi's signature dish is a creamy pork broth tonkotsu soup-based ramen.

The restaurant's menu includes the chicken paitan ramen with thin, straight noodles topped by tender char sou (roasted chicken and/or pork) and a marinated soft boiled egg. Other small dishes include house-made spring rolls, gyoza, salad, and mini bowls of rice with barbecue beef or chicken with eggs.

New small dishes include a housemade pork dumpling, pork belly buns and shrimp chili buns.

Ramen Takeya is open for lunch 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. and for dinner from 5-11:30 p.m. Tuesdays to Sundays. Dinner is served until 9:30 p.m. Sundays.
