New Ramenya coming soon to Beaverton, Or

  • 7

Tai Sho Ken.
visiting my sister in portland. driving down sw cedar hills blvd. we saw a sign for" Tai Sho Ken Ramen". It's in the old I Love Sushi building.
we stopped and found the owners working in the building. they are japanese and hope to open soon, maybe by end of this month. huge stock pots. a wok over a dedicated burner. they will offer some chinese style dishes but focus on ramen and other japanese dishes. i said i would let my internet friends know about their new venture.

  1. I just found a Japanese noodle place in SE--Shogun Noodle.
    I tried their ramen and it was very good! It's in the shopping center on 82nd where the Chinese grocery (Fubonn? or something like that) is.

    1. Here's a great collection of threads of ramen info, last link has Taikoshen (and other info), Shogun Noodle info also included:

        jillo, thanks for the links. i visit my sister and BIL in beaverton every 2-3 months. then we spend a day or two on food road trips. i'm excited to try out Taishoken. i've never tried Tsuekemen style. i hope Taishoken becomes new favorite. we rarely venture into portland, but Biwa ramen was a big disappointment for me. so far, Yuzu is my only favorite on the list. it might be time to cruise 82nd again. somehow we missed Shogun Noodle in Fubon a few years ago.

          Shogun has only been open for a handful of months, which should explain why you missed it.

          I have eaten at every single place Jill-O mentions and a few others(most numerous times) and I would rank them:
          1. Shigezo
          2. Yuzu
          3. Miho
          4. Mirakutei
          5. Toshi's

          1. re: nkeane

            thanks, nkeane. i guess i didn't make myself very clear...Yuzu and Biwa, and Hakatamon were the only ones that i have tried. from your list, i like Toshi's, the decor reminds me of those little shops in Japan.
            i looked up Shigezo's website, checked out comments on Yelp (no details here, on Chowhound) and it is on my list for my next visit in June, AFTER i get to Taishoken.
            seems to me everyone is trying to one-up their ramen, ala momofuku style, and missing the point. but that's just me. i'm from the Seattle area, and so far, there are maybe 3 ramenyas i like...and Samurai Ramen is not one of them. but that's just me.

              yeah I hear ya. That said, I can tell you that the Chef at Shigezo isn't trying to "one-up" anything. He came from Japan to open this restaurant and is making the exact same ramen he made while working their. Noodles are fresh and made in house everyday. A lot of the other things on the menu can be a little kooky(although I suspect it's just what westerners think because they aren't used to tons of regional variation to Japanese food. From what I have read and learned, what the chef does is pretty typical of the area south of Tokyo where he is from.), but the ramen is made well.

              1. re: nkeane

                ok, now, i will have to go to Shigezo first.
