Occupying the former Taco del Mar location at Kona Commons, the newly renovated space features granite countertops, beautiful wood paneling, intimate lighting, plenty of table and barstool seating, plus sushi-bar-style counter with seating for up to 10 people. “We love Kona Commons, and this is where we wanted to begin our expansion outside of Oahu,” said Ben Cheng, managing partner of Daiichi Ramen. “We renovated the space to match the look of our newer stores on Oahu. It’s a friendly and warm atmosphere. We want to provide a cozy and nice setting for our customers so that they can enjoy their dining experience and feel taken care of.” Continued on page 3 Opens at Kona Commons Shopping Center The Gomoku Ramen is a must-try at Daiichi Ramen in Kailua-Kona.
