— North Shoal Creek noodle soup shop Kiwami Ramen, which opened last summer, is now closed. It appears that a new restaurant took over its 2700 West Anderson Lane address called Red Pepper Szechuan House, according to an Eater tipster, though further details aren’t known at this point. Kiwami had been previously hot pot restaurant Shabu.
