Volar Karaoke Adds 'Roman Restaurant' W. Japanese Food

Volar Karaoke owners Barry Yeung and Phillip Chen are adding a full-service restaurant called Volar Roman Restaurant to their existing karaoke lounge. Yesterday the Planning Commission approved the proposal to turn their ground-floor ninety-square-foot office area into a kitchen that, upon transformation, will produce "Japanese cuisine, including ramen noodles, sushi rolls, soups, salads, smoothies and a variety of conventional cold drinks" for table service to the lounge's existing private karaoke rooms. The "Roman" thing is just strange as there is no mention of anything that even closely resembles Italian food. For now, let's just plan to add this to the short list of karaoke spots in town that serve food, including YamaSho in the Tenderloin and Festa in Japan Town, and call it a day. Proposed hours are 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., seven days a week. [Update: The planning commission document had a major typo. It should have said "Ramen Restaurant." Oy.]
