Slurping Turtle Opens Next Week at Easton
Despite the pandemic, Easton Town Center’s year of openings continues. Up next is Slurping Turtle, 4049 Worth Ave.
The Ann Arbor, Michigan-based eatery will make its debut on December 21 as part of the Easton Expansion, which has also seen 2020 openings in the restaurant and bar arena from Ivan Kane’s Forty Deuce, Beeline, True Food Kitchen, Crimson and Dragon Donuts.
Slurping Turtle will offer up a menu of Japanese ramen and sushi dishes.
“Slurping Turtle is a Japanese ramen shop with a menu that reflects our dedication to authentic ingredients,” says Chef Tadashi Nagura. “Unlike most other ramen shops, our noodles are made in-house and we offer a variety of broths, which gives our dishes variety and an unparalleled depth of flavor.”
Some of the eatery’s signature dishes include Classic Tokyo Shoyu Ramen, Duck Fat Fried Chicken and Hamachi Tacos. The menu also includes snacks like edamame, gyoza and a lineup of steamed bao buns. In the sushi department, guests will find sashimi, maki and a number of speciality rolls, as well as poke bowls.
Slurping Turtle will also feature and expansive bar and cocktail program that includes a number of sakes and Japanese whiskies.
The restaurant gets its name from the turtle’s symbology in Japanese culture – longevity and good luck – and slurping, which is considered a gesture of polite enjoyment when eating ramen.
“Slurping Turtle is going to be a delicious and colorful addition to the new district at Easton Town Center,” says Jennifer Peterson, chief executive, Easton. “Easton is all about sharing innovative and fun experiences with our guests, and with its twist to traditional Japanese ramen and sushi dishes, Slurping Turtle is sure to become a new favorite lunch and dinner spot.”
Slurping Turtle first opened in Chicago in 2011 before expanding to Ann Arbor in 2014. It continues to operate one additional restaurant in Ann Arbor.
Slurping Turtle at Easton will be open from 11 a.m . – 10 p.m. daily.
