Dining News: Ford's Hamburgers to be Replaced by New Restaurant by Shoki Owners


The owners of Shoki Ramen House, which has been named one of the top five Ramen restaurants in America, are expanding their empire by opening a third restaurant, reports Sac Foodways.

They are opening a brand new restaurant this summer called Sun Sun in the old Fords Drive In by Land Park – their cooking style is fresh, organic, local and with full intention of the best ramen in our area – and they achieve!

That tidbit was hidden away in a much longer article unrelated to restaurant openings and closings. Read the entire post in Sac Foodways.

Their second restaurant is a second Shoki Ramen House at 12th and R streets. The original location is on 24th St., just south of Broadway.

The Land Park News was the first to report that a new Asian restaurant was moving into the old Ford's Hamburger's building back in November.

The building that used to house Ford’s Hamburgers in Land Park has been vacant for over a year. It’s been sitting empty and alone for quite awhile...She didn’t seem to have much information but she did inform me that “there will be Asian cuisine going in at the location” perhaps before the end of the year.

A Folsom location is in the works, and the chain has plans for 75 restaurants throughout Northern California. I got my first taste of Firehouse Subs this week. I was served hot, meaty sandwiches fast, in a large, pleasant, if visually busy, dining room that has just enough firefighter ephemera -- a large mural, a shrine-like display of firefighting equipment in a corner – to maintain the concept without feeling kitschy a la themed joints like Mel's Diner.
