Ochado Ramen on Orchard Street Officially Dead in the Water

Don’t buy that BS about “piping issues.” Ochado Ramen will not be returning to 76 Orchard Street. The Japanese eatery has been closed for five months already, but only now publicly confirmed. Tombstone leasing signage was posted above the shuttered grate.
The ramen spot never really caught on, and struggled to keep customers. It bowed at 76 Orchard in June 2014, taking the reins from Spur Tree (now a joint operation with Norman’s Cay next door), but limped to its eventual demise in May. The first closure (i.e. sign of demise) was last year when the place shut down rather unexpectedly after three months in business. They returned for a brief stint shortly thereafter, but didn’t last.
Ochado failed in large part due to its inability to secure a full liquor license. That didn’t pass Community Board 3; only beer-wine was obtained.
