Kaido Japanese Cuisine has had a difficult time of it. They were forced to relocate to 1049 Gayley in Westwood when their original location in a strip mall in Santa Monica was cleared to make room for another big development. And now, sadly, it appears they are done at their current location. There’s a large “available” sign on the front announcing the news.
It was only back in June of 2018 that I told you about the arrival of Menya Musashi to 2012 Sawtelle Blvd. But as we know, ramen competition in Sawtelle Japantown is fierce. Sadly, they have given up the ghost. A gracious note on the front confirms that they have permanently closed, and thanks patrons for the support.
Ramen competition on Sawtelle is fierce… Add one more to the mix. A large banner over the space at 2012 Sawtelle Blvd. lets us know that a new noodle joint is on the way. Hailing from Shinjuku and named after a 17th century samurai, international chain Menya Musashi will soon be dishing their signature ramen and tonkotsu broth.
