A popular ramen chain is coming to Overland Park

JINYA, a ramen bar chain based in Los Angeles, will be opening its first Kansas location in the Bluhawk development in South Overland Park (7761 W. 159th St. Overland Park, KS) in February. With fifty locations throughout the US and Canada, the highly anticipated three-thousand-square-foot restaurant will specialize in traditional Japanese flavors, serving up authentic ramen and small plates. 

JINYA’s specialty ramen is known for its extensive offerings of savory broths. The broths are slowly simmered for twenty hours, getting flavor from pork bones, chicken, and vegetables, and many other Japanese ingredients. Special attention is paid to each part of the ramen process, from the water used in the broth to the noodle’s special aging process. Plant-based and vegan options are spread throughout the menu such as Impossible rice bowls, Impossible tacos and several vegan ramen bowls. 

Along with an open kitchen and patio, a full bar will offer sake flights, local craft beers, and Japanese whiskeys. The popular whiskey soda, Toki Highball, will make an appearance and be served from a super-chilled Suntory/Hoshizaki dispenser. 

Tomo Takahashi, the founder of JINYA, began his restauranteur career in 2000 in Tokyo, eventually bringing his ramen to the U.S., where JINYA restaurants began to spread like wildfire. Local franchisee Dave Sopark says, “JINYA has been a fan-favorite dining destination in neighboring Oklahoma for the past six years, so we’re beyond excited to bring our authentic Japanese ramen and tapas to the Kansas City metro.”
