A local ramen restaurant is expanding quickly around the Baltimore area.

Akira Ramen & Izakaya now has six - soon to be seven - locations. It just opened a restaurant at Waugh Chapel Towne Centre shopping center in Gambrills, and is getting ready to open another one at Circle East in Towson.

The restaurant, which says it "specialize[s] in taking the authentic ramen experience to the next level," already has locations at The Avenue at White Marsh, The Shops at Canton Crossing, and across from The Mall in Columbia.

It also opened locations in Columbia and Washington, D.C. two years ago, and in Rockville in 2017.

The restaurant says it was "co-founded by Master Noodle Chef Kotani Shuichi." Izakaya is a Japanese bar.
