Takopa, the Japanese street food restaurant in Chinatown Plaza from Go Hoashi, closes on March 29. Go Hoashi, the owner of Izakaya Go, the sushi burritos at Pokeman, and Ramen Show, plans to replace it with a second location of Ramen Show.

Takopa marked the first traditional takoyaki restaurant in Las Vegas with a menu of octopus balls in original, spicy, with a spicy cod roe, or with green onions and homemade dashi sauce for less than $10 when it debuted in October 2018.

Earlier this week, Takopa reported that business has been slow.

Ramen Show debuted in the southwest back in June with a menu of handmade noodles close to the intersection of Rainbow Boulevard and Robindale Road at the Rainbow Village Shopping Center. Proteins to go with the ramen include Spanish bluefin tuna, pork belly, pork shoulder, and chicken breast, and an all vegan option rounds out the menu
