We will be closed Monday May 29th, in observance of Memorial Day. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Tacopocalypse and Krunkwich Ramen House will be closed this coming Sunday, May 14th, so that our staff may spend time with their Mothers, being Mothers, and generally saluting Mothers. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you this coming Sunday. Brunchpocalypse and Krunkwich Dim Sum will resume their regular Sunday offerings on 5/21! Have a spectacular day with your loved ones, we will do the same, and see you soon!
Starting this Week Krunkwich will be closing at 9:30pm on Friday and Saturday evenings to get ready for Late night Hot dogs. Los Banditos Hotdog Speakeasy will continue to run 10pm-3am Friday and Saturday evenings.
Krunkwich Updated Hours
Friday& Saturday: 11am-9:30pm
We heard you wanted some new Krunk merch!?! So we’re selling hand painted XXL udon style bowls for $30. Did we mention these bowls were hand painted by Amanda Barr?! Stop by the restaurant and grab one!
Happy New Year, all! We here at Krunkwich Ramen hope that you had a safe and decent holiday season, and that you are ready for 2017. I mean, it’s here so hopefully you are ready for it. This weekend will mark the return of our Sunday All That N Dim Sum from 10am to 2pm. This week’s menu will be available on Sunday, as we are working a few things out this weekend.

Folks, we have been getting a lot of requests/questions/mild harassment about the dim sum end of “Krunkwich Ramen & Dim Sum*.” I’m happy to announce that we have gotten most of the logistics worked out in the kitchen here in the last week we have been open, and it’s time to expand our offerings.
December 4th, 2016 will mark the first of our Dim Sum Sunday services. We will be open from 10am to 3pm**, and will be a full service “sit down” restaurant for this one special weekly event.
A small taste of our Sunday menu:
Ramen (three different types, not the entire menu)
Jjigae (Korean Kimchi Stew)
Pork Belly & Rice
Chili Mirin Shrimp & Rice
Shrimp Mandu (Korean Shrimp Dumpling)
Our Tot menu
A selection of banchan
Salt & Pepper Wings
And much more, including some top secret “fusion breakfast***” items and more vegan dim sum! Feel free to flood us with the “will you have this?” questions, your request may make the menu or the specials board!
Thank you to all who have come in to enjoy our new space on Ingersoll! We are looking forward to serving you more of the best food in the Metro.
-Sam Auen, Owner
*I have changed the name on this site to “Krunkwich Ramen House” until we start serving Dim Sum, as I have received some rather not nice messages regarding my syntax error.
**Current Sunday hours are 11am to 3pm
KRUNKWICH WILL NOT BE OPENING TODAY, OCTOBER 21ST.
Krunkwich Ramen, as you may know has been in the process of moving to and completing a new location on Ingersoll Avenue in Des Moines. This opening date has been pushed back a few times, and unfortunately this is once again one of those times. I am not going to release the target date, as this has failed all of us on a few occasions. I will tell you this: as soon as we are ready, we will scream it to the high heavens that Krunkwich Ramen & Dim Sum is ready for you and yours to rejoin us for all of your favorites, along side new items from our symbiotic restaurant, Piu Piu Dim Sum (of which Krunkwich has taken its place), including traditional Korean fare, more Vegan stuff, VEGAN DESSERTS, AND OF COURSE SOME GOOD OLD FASHIONED CAPS LOCKED DIM SUM.
I’m once again sorry for the delay, what needs to be done is in the hands of some skilled professionals, and they will be finished when the job is…uh finished.
