A Japanese restaurant on Richmond Road will now serve food under a different name, but the menu is here to stay.

Yamachan, at 3044 Richmond Road in Patriot Plaza, posted a photo on Facebook Feb. 12 reading “DOMOISHI Formerly Yamachan.”

“We wanted to rebrand and separate our Yamachan brand so we can feature all our products, not just the (Yamachan) noodles,” store manager Almira Gennon said Tuesday.

“Domoishi” means “very delicious” in Japanese, Gennon said. 

As Yamachan, the restaurant has served boba tea, ramen, chicken wings and other appetizers since it opened in November.

Yamachan also advertised poke bowls when it first opened, but Gennon said those were put on hold and have not been served at the restaurant.

In a few weeks, Gennon said the restaurant hopes to start serving the previously-advertised poke bowls, a Hawaiian sushi-like dish based on diced raw fish. Customers will be able to choose between several types of fish for the protein in their poke bowl, then choose rice or noodles to add in.

Gennon said the restaurant is looking to hire a sushi chef to handle the poke bowl orders.

Yamachan opened in November in a spot formerly held by Snap-a-Roll sushi. Snap-a-Roll shuttered in October 2017 after a former manager announced the closing in a social media post that was critical of owner Song “Sam” Huang.
