HiroNori Craft Ramen, the Irvine-based joint that appeals to traditional and new-school ramen lovers alike, had officially opened its second location in Bixby Knolls at 610 E Carson St., just east of Atlantic Ave.
The slowly expanding ramen joint is fairly new, having opened its flagship Irvine shop in August of last year, amassing a quick cult-like following thanks to offering traditional Tonkotsu Ramen and Vegan Ramen side-by-side.
This is a solid point in Long Beach’s growing ramen scene—once a city devoid of the Japanese noodle soup, leaving folks like myself to venture to Daikokuya or Shin-Sen-Gumi for their ramen cravings—with the city’s inaugural ramen joint, Tajima Ramen, at SteelCraft in Bixby Knolls, and the soon-to-open Gu Ramen in DTLB. (Yes, we’re jealous Bixby Knolls is now home to two ramen hubs.)
