According to our friend Ricky Ly of Tasty Chomps, a new ramen restaurant will be opening in the former home of Tijuana Flats, next to the Starbucks, in Thornton Park.

Construction of the Jinya Ramen Bar (Website) will begin in the next few months and is expected to be open in 2018.

Jinya has 27 locations across Canada and the continental United States. Click HERE to see their menu.

  1. I’m excited for this to open! But when will everyone drop the Thornton Park label for things that aren’t in Thornton Park? The Starbucks is in South Eola. This will be opening in South Eola. Just because the developer who dropped that building in South Eola called it Thornton Park Central, doesn’t make it any more Thornton Park than Winter Park.

    1. While I agree, the official Thornton Park Main Street District essentially covers both neighborhoods. Confusing yes, but that’s how it is.

      1. Yes that main street program covers two neighborhoods, but is named after one of them and they never ever mention the name of the other one. It’s shady politics and makes them look foolish because 90% what they promote is in South Eola. Dont get me wrong I love Thornton Park but there’s not a lot there.

    2. Officially, South Eola begins at Eola Avenue, from what we’ve seen on official City maps.
