Ramen fans: Stand down.
Jack Fukuda, the owner of the new Yokohama Ramen Joint, has apparently underestimated the demand for ramen in Wichita.
One day after he opened the doors, he’s out of food. The restaurant at 613 W. Douglas will be closed today, Monday, but may reopen on Tuesday. He asks customers to check his Facebook page for updates on his reopening.
On Sunday, the tiny restaurant’s opening day, it was overwhelmed with people. At one point, there was a four-hour wait, he said, and the kitchen flew through a three-day’s supply of food. He had to close several hours early, and the chefs could not catch up for prep today.
