A friend told me that there is a ramen house coming in early August in Annandale. I will be in the same little shopping area as A&J. I haven't been able to find out anything about it except for what was posted on annandale.patch.com. Quote below.
I hope it is wonderful - I look forward to more local ramen!
"Tanpopo Ramen House will be located at 4316 Markham St., next to A&J Restaurant. Tanpopo means “dandelion” in Japanese.
The restaurant, which is family-owned and operated, will specialize in ramen soup and also include a sushi bar."
