Updated 10:45 a.m. – Ramen and Rice will be opening in Herndon (482 Elden St) early next year.
Sirinda Liw, owner of Ramen and Rice, said despite the company name being Oki Bowl of Herndon the restaurant shares no connection to the chain located in Washington, D.C.
“It’s going to be fusion ramen,” said Liw, “much tastier than regular ramen.”
Ramen and Rice will be located in Herndon Centre between The Deli and the Nail Villa. Additionally, the ABC permit in the window indicates the location will be serving wine and beer.
Liw said the construction process is still in discussion with a planned opening in January or beginning February. The interior is still vacant and decorated as Tipicos Gloria, a closed Central American eatery.
