Shige Closes In Downtown Boise
I heard rumors about this months ago and internally screamed “NOOO!” at the top of my lungs!
I never had sushi until I moved to Boise and Lucky the DJ convinced me to step outside of my comfort zone to give it a try. He’s the one that introduced me to Shige and ever since, I love challenging myself to see how many $1 plates of sushi I can actually fit into my stomach. Have those days drawn to a close, forever?
Not exactly. Shige is closed in the Capitol Terrace building on 8th Street, but not the one you’re thinking. Shige Japanese Steakhouse next door is actually the restaurant that closed it’s doors in early April.
According to the Idaho Statesman, the steakhouse closed to make way for Ramen Sho, slated to open on May 1st. The ramen bowls are a tick more expensive than the ramen you lived off of in college at $7.99, $9.99 or $11.99 a bowl. But you’re getting quality ramen prepared like they do it in Japan for that cash! Flavors include curry tan tan, veggie ramen and cold noodles served on the side of the sauce.
Ramen not your thing? You can still stop by for Japanese fried chicken, dumplings, stir fry and more.
Ramen Sho will become Boise’s first Ramen restaurant. Boise Fry Co. has been working on their pet project RamaPong (blending fine ramen dining with a love of ping png) but has pushed back the opening several time over the last year.
And in case you didn’t read it right the first time…SHIGE JAPANESE CUISINE is staying open. Long live $1 sushi!!!
