Menya Jiro

Menya Jiro, the award-winning and internationally recognized ramen restaurant known for its build-your-own options and signature ramen base, will open its second location outside of Japan and New York City at Legacy Place. Named one of “The Best Ramen Restaurants in America” by Thrillist, Menya Jiro is excited to bring its long and rich history of creating ramen dishes to Greater Boston.

The restaurant was founded in Ibusuki City, Kagoshima District, Japan in 2010 by chef and owner Jiro Anma, who later expanded the concept overseas in 2017 with the opening of the first of three New York City locations. Menya Jiro has literally taken the ramen scene by storm, winning over thousands of diners and taking home several awards for its tantalizing noodle dishes, including two consecutive wins at the New York Street Ramen Contest and the esteemed Yamanashi Shimbun Grand Prix Ramen Contest in Japan.

The restaurant prides itself on practicing the time-honored traditions of ramen preparation and adhering to the authentic flavors of Japan. Menya Jiro’s ramen begins with a base of broth enriched by combining both pork and chicken. With its build-your-own menu format, diners can choose from a selection of protein options, plus vegetable sides and additional toppings and seasonings. Fried onions and garlic are both added to the ramen just before serving to refine the flavor of the dish, increasing the bowl’s umami. A spicy version as well as light and rich broth options and a vegetarian miso broth are all available.
