A new Japanese restaurant specializing in ramen had its soft opening Thursday, according to its Website.
Akita-Ramen is located in the Shawsheen Plaza on North Main Street. The restaurant took over the spot previously occupied by Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, which closed last spring. Akita-Ramen’s menu features traditional ramen dishes, with entrée prices ranging from $15 to $20.
“We thought it might be a good idea if there is an authentic Japanese ramen shop here in Andover, so we decided to open one for ourselves,” Akita-Ramen said on its Website.
