Ohjah Noodle House
Address: 7150 S. Durango Drive, Suite 190
Status: Open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Ohjah Japanese Steakhouse has very quietly added a new concept to their local portfolio of four very popular hibachi and teppanyaki focused restaurants. Ohjah Noodle House has taken over a retail center's corner spot at the intersection of Warm Springs Road and Durango Drive.
The 1,800-square-foot casual restaurant features a compact menu, specializing in ramen dishes prepared by a culinary team working inside a glass windowed kitchen.
On the menu, appetizers like $3.25 shrimp skewers, $4.75 yaki gyoza and $3.50 edamame, plus "house special" beef, salmon and chicken choices and their $8.75 chicken or beef katsu.
The main focus is the ramen, which begins with a bowl featuring chasu (pork belly), menma (bamboo shoots), scallion, seaweed and bean sprouts. The $8.95 options are tonkatsu, curry, shoyu, miso and vegetable, while the $9.75 "specials" include tantan, beef, seafood and oxtail.
Extra toppings can include ground pork, chicken and corn.
The growing Ohjah empire was created in 2010 by chef Zhigang Wang, who previously worked at the Aladdin, the Orleans and for eight years at the Mirage.
