One of the best things about living near Portland is that there is a lot of good Japanese food around here. When we first came back to the states, it was either nonexistent in this area or else just terrible, but now there are a lot of great choices.
According to Willamette Week, a well-known ramen shop in Tokyo known as Afuri is going to join the party. The hours listed on their liquor license application are pretty impressive too: 11 am to midnight weekdays, and 11 am – 2 am on Fridays and Saturdays, according to Portland Food and Drink.
I may have to round up some of the Japanese guys from work and have a ramen dinner night out. I don’t see any mention of an anticipated opening date. Hopefully soon!
