Legacy Hall, the food hall in Plano, never stays idle for long and the newest concept opening will serve hibachi and ramen. Called Chef Chin's Hibachi & Ramen, the restaurant will open on February 18 with a unique twist on the Japanese traditions of hibachi and ramen kitchen by serving them in a fast-casual setting.
The titular chef is Chef Chin Liang, a Legacy Hall veteran who opened Hōru Sushi Kitchen there in September 2019, and was previously executive ramen chef at Ajisen Ramen. He knows hibachi, ramen, and sushi.
"I want to show people that hibachi and ramen can be just as thoughtful and delicious in a casual setting," Liang says in a release. "Everything we serve will be fresh, top quality, and sourced from the best markets around the world. Our ramen broth base will take 24 hours to prepare, and even our miso soup will be homemade. There is going to be a great attention to detail in everything we serve."
The menu features hibachi, hibachi fried rice, stir-fry yakisoba noodles, ramen, sides, and desserts.
The hibachi entrees are prepared with soy or teriyaki and come with choice of veggie, chicken, NY strip steak, shrimp, salmon, filet mignon, and lobster, and are served with mixed vegetables and steamed rice.

Kulsoom Klavon, a VP at the food hall says in a statement that they've noticed a growing desire for Asian cuisine in the market.
"We knew we wanted to offer another style of Asian cuisine, and with his extensive culinary background, Chef Chin was the obvious partner to test this new concept," she says.
