Mike Andrzejewski's Cantina Loco has generated more questions and interest directed my way than any other recent Buffalo restaurant openings, but NoNoo Ramen Bar, by ex-SeaBar cook Chris Van Every, has been a close second.
It's the first dedicated Japanese-style noodle soup emporium in town, and Buffalo.com's Ben Tsujimoto has given it a rave review, with lots of pictures. Donnie Burtless and Alli Suriani at Buffalo Eats confessed to being "pretty impressed" in their review.
Besides the soup - a million times better than the cheap, artificially-flavored bricks that fuel college students - there's Japanese comfort food like okonomiyaki (savory pancakes) and crispy chicken katsu (cutlet) with Japanese curry gravy and rice.
Having worked though its "soft" opening, NoNoo is now open for lunch Thursdays and Fridays, its site says.
