Oops, we did it again.


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.

New Opening Date For Krunkwich Ingersoll!

As you all know, things happen.  We have run into a few more short delays, and our opening date will be pushed back to October 6th, 2016.  This will give us time to finish up our move (we have a lot of stuff!!!!!), and be totally prepared for you to come ravage our menu. Thank you for your continued patience, I promise it will be worth the wait!

Krunkwich is moving to Ingersoll

*Special Announcement*

Krunkwich Ramen House, established April 2015 in the Historic East Village of Des Moines, IA, will be relocating to 2721 Ingersoll Avenue and combining menus/forces with the upcoming Good Word Restaurant Group spot Piu Piu Dim Sum. The new restaurant will be called “Krunkwich Ramen House & Dim Sum,” and will serve the full Krunkwich Ramen House menu along with Korean dishes such as Bibimbap, an even larger Vegan menu, and a mix of classic and Korean/Chinese/Midwestern inspired dim sum on Sundays. Krunkwich is slated to reopen on September 28, 2016.

We are very excited to bring Des Moines’ original and only Ramen House to the Avenues! Thank you for your patience as the Krunkwich situation was being sorted out. We will see you soon, noodle lovers!


Sorry for any inconvenience.

Folks, our grease trap succumbed to old age this week, and it looks like it may take a bit to get it replaced. We are currently going through the proper channels to make this happen as quickly as possible, so that we may get back to serving your favorite noodles, tots, sandwiches, and Vegan goodies. All apologies for this break in service, in the mean time you can visit our sister restaurant Tacopocalypse, also in the East Village. Also watch for the opening of our next restaurant, Piu Piu on Ingersoll.

Welcome To Krunkwich!
