Ramen chain Afuri to open in Singapore
Japanese ramen chain Afuri is to open its first outlet in Singapore, at Funan mall.
Brought to Singapore by F&B group Japan Foods Holding, the Funan outlet will be known as Afuri Ramen + Dumpling.
Besides Afuri’s signature yuzu ramens, the expanded menu will have small plates options as well as gyoza (dumplings).
Funan mall will open its doors to shoppers on June 28, after a three-year redevelopment.
Afuri ramen adds to the food options at Funan, including Japanese restaurant Noka, urban farming outfit Edible Garden City, Taiwanese bubble tea brand Milksha, and modern Peranakan restaurant Godmama.
Named after Mount Afuri in Japan, the chain first started in 2001, known as Zund-Bar, at the foot of Mount Afuri.
It changed brand to Afuri in 2003, and now has 15 outlets worldwide.
The latest location was Lisbon, Portugal.
Afuri ramen instant noodles have been sold in Singapore at selected supermarkets and Japanese speciality food marts.
