Ippudo for less

In honor of its 33rd anniversary, Japan-based ramen chain Ippudo is practically giving away its ramen today. Diners visiting the Ippudo at 18 Yerba Buena Lane will find a ramen special priced at just $3.30 during normal business hours. That specific ramen special is the Ramen Zero 1985, Ippudo’s original ramen recipe featuring tonkotsu pork broth, thin noodles, ground white sesame, and pork belly chashu.

A cozy bar no more

After eight years in Bernal Heights, popular hangout Iron & Gold will close in December when its lease is up. It’s a tough loss for the neighborhood, especially when the Elbo Room will be closing Jan. 1 not too far away. Owner Mathias Kornfeld told Mission Local that he may try to open Iron & Gold in a different location.

Chef Smelly finds a new home

The 5 p.m. lines outside Oakland’s Complex nightclub came to a halt when the Alameda County health department recently shut down the city’s most popular weekly pop-up restaurant, Chef Smelly. Blackened shrimp and mac ‘n’ cheese are already back, though: Tonight Chef Smelly is at a new location, Roderick’s BBQ, 2708 98th Avenue in East Oakland.

Greens returns

Following a four-month, fire-related closure, SF’s most revered vegetarian restaurant, Greens, is finally back open tonight at 5:30 p.m.

Vietnamese to North Beach

Miki Ramen has closed after just three months in business, but the space has been quickly retooled as Kim Sanh, a Vietnamese restaurant. Located at 620 Broadway, Kim Sanh serves a simple menu vermicelli bowls, pho, garlic noodles, and rice plates.

Mission sushi

Sake Bomb is now open at 2878 24th Street, offering a wide variety of nigiri, sashimi, rolls, grilled skewers, and other Japanese plates in the former Ming’s Fong Lam space.

Cooking in America returns to SF
