An update on Hachiban Ramen, one of the victims of the Bangkok Floods in 2011 almost five months since they closed.

By Karn G. Bulsuk


One of the most poignant images of the floods were the closed Hachiban Ramen shops. A ubiquitous sight in all department stores in Bangkok, they were one of the first victims of the floods, and were forced to close all their stores when their central kitchen in Navanakorn Industrial Estate was flooded early in October.

More than five months after their closure and three months since the flooding were officially over, many of their branches remain closed. Some however, such as the one above at Big C Rama 4 (the former Carrefour) has been able to reopen.

Seeing them start to reopen is undoubtedly good news for former employees, who may be rehired to help reopen these stores. Hopefully, we can see this trend continue.
