Sarah Gavigan opens the newest outpost of her Otaku Ramen empire on Monday, September 21 inside the new Sylvan Supply space at 4109 Charlotte Avenue in West Nashville.

Open only for takeout and delivery, Otaku Ramen West will offer the same menu as the Gulch and East Nashville locations. No dine-in options will be available, even post-COVID-19 restrictions.

This adds delivery as an option to a few new neighborhoods, including Green Hills, Belle Meade, Berry Hill, Oak Hill, Sylvan Park, Charlotte Ave, and the Nations. Pickup will be available at all three locations, and delivery will be serviced via Postmates. Otaku’s Boba will also expand to the same space later in the year.

The city’s first dedicated ramen shop, Otaku opened in 2016 and has the most extensive ramen menu in the city — with steaming bowls of shoyu, tonkotsu, and (brothless) mazeman all available for slurping. Owner Sarah Gavigan has become such an expert on the art of ramen-making that she released her own cookbook on the matter.
