A Wichita Falls ramen noodle restaurant is expanding to Keller with construction scheduled to start in August and wrap up by December.

Owner Injun Shim said he expects to open Hoshi Ramen shortly after construction finishes at 1301 Keller Parkway, Ste. 200, Keller. The Fort Worth resident opened Taki Ramen in Wichita Falls in 2021 and is bringing a second restaurant to the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

The business will offer appetizers such as edamame, gyoza and spring rolls. Entrees include rice bowls, salads and tonkotsu, shoyu, aka, miso and specialty ramen noodles with brisket, pork, shrimp, kimchi or tofu. There is also a children’s menu.

Japanese beer, Korean liquor and sake are on the menu in Wichita Falls, and Shim said he will apply for a liquor license at this location. The restaurant will occupy 1,980 square feet, and the estimated construction cost is $490,000, according to a filing with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation.
