A small, Canadian ramen restaurant has made the long expansion from Alberta and with zero fanfare is now serving a collection of authentic dishes in Spring Valley.
Ramen Arashi has been operating on the second floor of a Banff shopping mall for less than a year, but has received multiple accolades as an unexpected “hidden gem.”
In Las Vegas, the casual, minimally designed space replaces Apache Grill’s burgers and gyros at the Montage Retail Shopping Center, close to the intersection of Peace Way and Fort Apache Road, nestling in as a new neighbor to The Juice Standard.
On the menu, a number of choices imported from the north, including the black tantan men dish created with black sesame and pork, tonkotsu ramen prepared with pork belly, a version of miso ramen, and the house specialty, Arashi tantan men, featuring porky belly chashu, egg, spinach, and nori.
Current sides dishes include chicken karaage and takoyaki octopus snacks.
Ramen Arashi, 4555 S Ft. Apache Road, Suite 110; 702-485-3222. Open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
