Guu owners to open new ramen restaurant on Baldwin
For every Wild Wing there's a promising new ramen joint? If only the world was so kind. But at least that's the case for Baldwin Village, where the owners of Guu Izakaya and Guu SakaBar have decided to open up their third Toronto location, Kinton Ramen, just down the street from where the corporate wing palace is also ready to set up shop.
Chef Masaru Ogasawara tipped us off to his desire to open another location when we spoke with him back in March, saying that they might "open up the third one by the end of this year or the beginning of next year," but either he was being coy or the timeline accelerated rather rapidly over the last couple of months. Either way, fans of Japanese noodles — which ultimately make up a fairly small portion of the current Guu menus — have reason to celebrate.
According to a sign on the door at the near-complete restaurant at 51 Baldwin Street, the opening date is set for Friday, May 18 (though NOW reports that it's actually Monday). The patio doesn't look too shabby either. And if noodles aren't your thing, there's always Wild Wing.
