The Ichicoro team is infamous for their success in Manhattan and was even featured in the New York Times. But now, lucky for you, you don’t have to go to NYC to see what all the ramen rave is about –
 
You just have to go to Seminole Heights, where the food scene is continuing to grow its reputation as one of the best foodie scenes in Tampa.

Ramen bars have been very successful in other large cities across the country and it only shows Tampa’s growth when owners, Noel Cruz and Chef Masaru Takaku, decided to open their pop-up restaurant here on the lower east side of the city.
 
 
Ichicoro’s menu is best described as “Tampa-styled ramens” because they combine their authentic ramen recipes with local Florida ingredients and native produce, including their already successful dishes: tonkatsu, vegetable and spicy abura soba.

Ichicoro will be located at 5229 North Florida Avenue.
