It was just over the holidays that The Burn told you the new Marumen location in Sterling was preparing to open. Now, we have a date. The restaurant will unlock its doors this Friday, January 11 — part of a week-long soft opening.

Marumen is in the Cascades Overlook center in the former Ocean Blue space. This is the second location for the brand. A successful Marumen has been satisfying customers in Fairfax for several years now.

For the uninitiated, ramen is a Japanese dish consisting of a clear soup with noodles and oftentimes vegetables or meat.
