With the original location in Winter Park, Domu will be bringing its craft cocktails and ramen to Restaurant Row.
“We do everything really simple,” Domu Winter Park Manager Dallas Perdew said. “When you come, it’s very urbanized and very modern and very trendy, but simple.”
Perdew said each dish is made fresh and from scratch with an emphasis on quality and “being true to Japanese culture.” The noodles served in each bowl of ramen are made fresh daily.
“We have noodle machine upstairs in our office (that’s) imported from Japan,” Perdew said. “Everything (is done) very meticulously. If something doesn’t taste right or doesn’t look right, it’s not going to be sold. … We have the mindset of: if we’re not going to eat it, why would we serve it to our guests?”
The attention to detail has not gone unnoticed. In January, USA Today ranked Domu as a top ramen destination for the entire state.
