Eatery will offer new later-night dining and expanded menu

US-based restaurant operator Yoshiharu Global is set to launch its new concept called Yoshiharu Ramen & Izakaya, at its current La Mirada location.

The operator, known for Japanese ramen, made a soft launch of the new concept on April 7th and will make a grand opening this Friday April 14th.

Tucked away in the Stater Bros. shopping center at 12806 La Mirada Boulevard, Yoshiharu Ramen & Izakaya will offer a wide array of menu options to its guests including their signature ramen dishes, as well as a brand-new selection of Izakaya dishes.

Yoshiharu president & CEO and Board chairman James Chae said: “The introduction of a new concept at our La Mirada location showcases our ability to stay on top of current restaurant trends and deliver unmatched authentic Japanese dining experiences that are catered to our customers’ evolving preferences."

Additionally, the new restaurant will offer alcoholic beverages including Sake, Shochu and Chu-Hi drinks. New operating hours will allow the restaurant to remain open later into the evening; Sunday through Thursday 5:00 p.m.-Midnight and Friday and Saturday 5:00 p.m.-2:00 a.m.

Chae added, "At La Mirada, our customers and the community desired a place to socialize with family and friends over great food and drinks late into the night, so we aimed to create a welcoming and enjoyable atmosphere for them. We pride ourselves on our capacity to anticipate and fulfil the needs of our growing customer base depending on the location, and we eagerly await feedback on our new menu and beverage selections."

Yoshiharu has other locations in the area including Cerritos, Whittier and Buena Park. Later this month they plan to open new locations in Corona and Garden Grove as well as several other locations later this year.

A second late-night destination also opened in the area recently. Samurai Hibachi & Grill, at Rosecrans and Valley View Avenues, is open seven days a week until midnight.
