Like a real-deal psychic or those dogs that can sense when an earthquake is coming, Red Light Ramen anticipated Milwaukee’s current ramenpalooza by several years. The popular noodle emporium began life as an after-hours weekend pop-up restaurant inside Ardent. In the summer of 2016, Red Light moved to a permanent space next door. Since then, it’s common to see folks waiting outside as early as 6 p.m., caught between the aroma of piping-hot ramen and the temptation of affordable Lord Of The Rings DVD box sets at the nearby Mega Media Xchange.
The only problem: Red Light Ramen’s limited Wednesday-Saturday hours. But forget all that, because the ever-awesome restaurant just announced that, beginning July 22, it will be open Sundays and Tuesdays, too. Its hours on those extra days will be from 5-10 p.m. Its normal Wednesday-Saturday hours will remain 6 p.m.-1 a.m.
So yeah, Red Light Ramen is going to be open six days a week. Like, every day except Monday. YES.
