Campus Spot Yatai Is Closing to Make Way for Third Michi Ramen

Keeping the transformation in the family

Yatai’s time in campus is short-lived as Michi Ramen decided to shut down the Japanese street food spot. Instead, it decided to turn the space in the back of host bar Hole in the Wall into the third location of the now-growing fast casual ramen chain.

The last day of Yatai will be on Sunday, October 2. Its menu offered kushiyaki (grilled skewers), tempura, and korokke (basically a potato cake). To satisfy the ramen requirement, a smaller version of its noodle soup, vegetarian or tonkotsu, was served, too. The snack-sized ramen will stay on the lineup when it reopens, though that date isn’t known yet.

Yatai took over East Side King’s ramen-flinging branch’s vacated area in March. Michi Ramen opened its first location on North Lamar in 2013, followed by the take-out spot on South Lamar in 2015.
