“We’re hoping to feed more than 100 first responders and hospital workers from the Piscataway community during our Grand Opening celebration to give back to them after the more than two brutal years that they’ve been taking care of us during the Covid-19 pandemic,” said VP Beau Stickley. “Kanji Noodle Bar features authentic ramen noodles, and we take great pride in serving the finest and freshest ramen in the area. In addition to noodles, we offer a full range of traditional and contemporary Japanese cuisine.”
