In the middle of the block, Kru chef/owner Billy Ngo is gearing up for the unveiling of Kodaiko, his basement ramen bar, by early July. Kodaiko will offer two types of broth bases: a Tokyo-style tonkotsu gyokai made with pork bones and house-dried snapper and a vegan broth made with mushrooms and cashew cream, as well as seasonal variations and specials. The noodle dish will feature classic toppings like marinated soft-boiled eggs, chashu pork and green onions. Modeled after subterranean ramen stops in Japan, the restaurant’s K Street entrance is marked by a neon ramen bowl sign from where guests will then head underground to an intimate 3,300-square-foot space decorated with murals and Japanese posters.
