Former food truck Torraku Ramen, which opened its first brick-and-mortar spot in the Design District three years ago, is expanding with a new location in SoMa, just south of Yerba Buena at 921 Folsom Street.

Torraku specializes in tonkatsu (pork broth) ramen, and also serves shoyu (soy) ramen, and chicken and pork katsu (fried cutlets) over rice as well. As Hoodline previously reported, the owners ship in fresh ramen noodles from Southern California every two days.

The second brick-and-mortar location is moving into a retail space in the newly constructed apartment building at 923 Folsom, and a three-month construction permit just went up, as tipster Albertino M. shows us.

Torraku's original location remains open for takeout and outdoor dining at 300 De Haro Street. The hours are 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
