Love Ramen's Atwood Street location temporarily closed for renovations; new spot on Fifth Ave. open.

The Love Ramen at 229 Atwood St. in Oakland (map) is temporarily closed for renovations. During that time, according to a county inspection report, it will revamp the menu and add a new bathroom. A new self-serve noodle place from the owners of Love Ramen opened this month at 3608 Fifth Ave. (map), in what was formerly Hanami and Thai Hana. Staff refer to the place as Love Ramen in English, though it exists online as Malaxiangguo because the lone English-language signage on the window is an advertisement for hot pot.
