Revamp of Ramen Champ with stops for Dessert and Coffee

I attended Ramen Champ's Grand Opening back in January 2015 and now back again for another opening?   OK, a couple other times too,  but who's counting, right?
Let me explain why another opening.
Chef / owner Alvin Cailan of Eggslut opened this ramen outlet in January.  Although he'll still be a part of Ramen Champ, the new team is lead by Yoshimasa Kasai.  You may have heard of him as the former director of Ramen Yokocho
Revamp Ramen Champ opens on October 2nd!

Read my first visit to Ramen Champ HERE
 The restaurant is located on the 2nd floor of the Far East Plaza, home to Roy Choi's Chego and Andy Ricker's Pok Pok Phat Thai.   The space reminds me of ramen shops in Japan, small spaces with open kitchens and all counter seating.

 Since this was the first day of a media preview, the menu was limited with 3 different kinds of ramen offered.

 I was a bit more interested in the sides, since I was a fan of Ramen Champ's mushrooms, which was not on this menu.
OK, so we ordered one …
