jinya
1336 14th Street, NW

Finally some progress at the Jinya (which we first heard about in Dec. ’15) coming to the former Ghana Cafe space on 14th Street just south of Rhode Island.

The new placard also says: ‘Applicant requests a Summer Garden Endorsement.”

Jinya’s website says:

“JINYA Ramen Bar serves “Tonkotsu Ramen”, rich and strong smelling noodle. Tonkotsu uses pork broth which is pumped up with industrial quantities of dashi and dried fish, a broth that seemed to be trying to establish the record for the most umami per milligram.

Simply put, tasting is believing. Only a handful Californian residents and lucky tourists could enjoy the fantastic taste of JINYA Ramen. Not anymore. With as low as $350K initial investment, you can own and run “JINYA, Ramen Bar” in your location.”

Check out some of their menus here.  Stay tuned.
