Dining News: Noodles to Thai For to Replace Shoki on 24th


Shoki Ramen House, which is in the process of moving from its original location on 24th St. in Curtis Park to the old Trails Restaurant on 21st St., will be replaced by Noodles to Thai For.

I reached out to the restaurant owners on Thursday afternoon for more details, but did not hear back as of the time of publication.

On Twitter, this is how they tease their restaurant:

Do you like Thai food? Do you like noodles? Do you like Thai noodles? Well, Noodles to Thai for is coming to Sac ...See you soon!!

The restaurant, which had targeted an August opening, now expects to open in September.

As for Shoki, I drive by their new location once a week, but it still looks like construction is going on inside the building. I'll let you know when it opens. Of course, those seeking their Shoki fix can still head to their R street location.

Pre-Flite Lounge Re-Emerges at a New Location, Bringing With It Many Familiar Faces - Where there once was a bar, hidden in a seemingly abandoned basement corridor of the downtown mall, there now exists a crater under construction. The Pre-Flite Lounge was a 40-year-old time capsule, a quaint bar untouched by time, that perhaps lingered because it was forgotten. The Pre-Flite Lounge was lukewarm domestic beer served in frosted mugs to offset the tap temperature. A heavy hand poured no-nonsense cocktails like whiskey-water, gin-tonic and vodka-soda. When the craft-craze of artisanal beer and cocktails swept through Sacramento, the Pre-Flite didn’t balk and no one seemed to mind. Former regulars look back and their memories are unified by signifiers like “unpretentious” and “classic.” Everyone remembers their first time and becomes protective of who they tell out of respect for the bar. Blake Gillespie in Submerge Mag.
