The Costa Mesa ramen renaissance seemed to have hit a speed bump. A tipster named cbc commented on my recent restaurant roll call post that Jinya Ramen in Costa Mesa, which has only been open for a little more than a year, is going to be closing mid-month.
The competition has been undoubtedly fierce, what with Santoka, Yamadaya and so many others in the city.
Yet, the store's Facebook's post continue, business as usual. The only hint that their departure is imminent is a response to a customer comment who wrote, "Very Sad u r closing. I really thought something finally was going to make it there."
