—Ani Ramen hits a milestone with their ninth location. 

From its humble beginnings on Bloomfield Avenue in Montclair, NJ, Ani Ramen was always destined for success. Still, I don’t think anybody could’ve predicted the rise to fame that the once-small noodle shop would experience.

Opening over seven years ago in the original Montclair location, Ani Ramen now has more than one store per year of their existence. With the newest location in historic Princeton, NJ, Ani Ramen finds itself on the precipice of national recognition. Ramen is pretty available nowadays, so why can’t people get enough of Ani Ramen? It’s simple, really. Ani Ramen brings approachable and accessible ramen and other Japanese food to the table. For customers, this means a low-effort way to experience big flavors. For Ani itself, it means a constant flow of customers that keep coming back for complex flavors presented in a digestible way. 

When Ani first opened, ramen was scarce in the Garden State. Since then, its popularity has grown exponentially— with Ani Ramen at the forefront of the effort. This newest location proves that there’s no intention of slowing down. 

Ani Ramen Princeton will be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, with takeout and to-go options available. In addition, Ani Princeton will feature a Saturday brunch menu that offers fun options like a Taylor Ham bao bun and funfetti matcha pancakes. 

Ani makes its debut in Mercer County with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on January 12 at 4:00 p.m. 

You can now find an Ani Ramen in most regions of New Jersey. The noodles aren’t beholden to NJ, though. Ani now has locations in New York City and New York State in addition to its Jersey restaurants. It seems it won’t be long before you can satisfy your Ani cravings no matter where you are in the tri-state area.
