Ramen Soul is their name, and “Ramen, dim-sum, and then some” is their game.

For those of you who don’t know, dim-sum is basically bite-sized portions of food, AKA appetizers. Photo by LunahZon Photography for Lake Norman Magazine.

Chef duo Timothy and Melanie Groody, owners of the Fork! restaurant in Cornelius, are opening a new Asian-themed spot with an Americanized, chef-driven twist in Mooresville.

Ramen Soul features traditional noodles and broth with seasonal toppings and variations.

This is nothing like the microwavable ramen you ate in college when you were hungry at 2:00 AM. via Facebook.

You can expect made-from-scratch, flavorful dishes, like these rice noodle rolls.

Health nuts, rejoice. They source all food from local areas, and even grow their own herbs in house (say what?!). via Facebook.

And specialty drinks like sake-infused cocktails

Don’t worry, there’s something for everybody- whether you like whiskey or want to go for something a little lighter.

In addition to cocktails and sake, they’ll also have a wine and beer list.

The restaurant has a relaxed vibe. Sit at the bar or on the outdoor patio and enjoy a sake-inspired cocktail while old Kung Fu movies play on the TVs.

Ramen Soul opens tonight (Wednesday) for dinner service. On Monday they’ll open for lunch and dinner. Their hours are Sun- Mon 11-9, and Tue-Sat 11-10.

If it doesn’t scream modern ramen restaurant with a chill vibe that serves specialty sake cocktails, I don’t know what does. Cool shirts. via Facebook.
