In other ramen news, Ika Ramen is headed to Papillion in early 2021.
Ika chef and owner Jose Dionicio said the southwest Omaha location of his popular ramen spot was to be his 2020 project, until the pandemic hit.
Now, he’s planning to open in Shadow Lake Town Center early next year.
“We signed the deal back in January, but as it developed, we decided this is the one for early 2021,” he said. “We’re trying to bring some other options to that area.”
The menu at the third Ika will serve ramen and sushi, similar to the original in Benson and Ika San in the Old Market.
