Kukai Ramen & Izayaka, a Japanese ramen chain with shops across greater
Seattle, Taiwan and Japan, will be opening its first Portland-area outpost in
Beaverton’s Timberland Town Center approximately in the next week.
At the 62-seat restaurant, you’ll find 12 different bowls of ramen — ranging
from garlic tonkotsu shoyu ramen, the restaurant’s spin on the ultra rich and
porky Hakata-style soup, to chicken ramen and Tsukemen dipping noodles,
most available in traditional and low-sodium versions — a handful of rice
dishes and small izakaya plates, including takoyaki (octopus dumplings),
chicken karaage, pork buns and more.
For those already familiar with Kukai’s menu, the Beaverton location will
debut a smattering of new dishes, including a more classic version of
tonkotsu, made with a shio broth base, a spicy miso ramen (coming in the
next few weeks) and a few izakaya plates. These dishes will slowly be added to
the menu at other locations. Behind the bar, the restaurant offers a selection
of sake by the glass and in bottles, as well as Japanese beers and cocktails.
