Welcome to
Shumi Ramen

Dedicated to Audrey -

Serving Love, One Bowl at a Time

Our Story
Shumi Ramen was operated by Kenny and Winnie as a heartfelt tribute to their beloved daughter, Audrey. Audrey, born at Eden Hospital and a true ramen lover, tragically passed away at the young age of 17. To celebrate her life, Kenny and Winnie channeled their love and memories into creating Shumi Ramen, a place where families and friends could gather and enjoy authentic, homemade ramen. For three years, Shumi Ramen has been a cornerstone of the Lake Chabot Public Market, serving gourmet food with a special place in our hearts for children and families.

The Unthinkable Happened

On May 30, 2024, a devastating 3-alarm fire engulfed the Lake Chabot Public Market, leaving Shumi Ramen and many other beloved establishments in ruins. Overnight, Kenny and Winnie

lost their entire livelihood.

 

Despite their immense efforts to keep the business afloat, including paying off a business loan, they now face the harsh reality of debt collectors from outstanding contract obligations, all while struggling to cover basic living expenses.

Rising from the Ashes

Kenny and Winnie's commitment to Shumi Ramen and Audrey’s memory remains unshaken. They believe deeply in the power of community and the importance of the connections they’ve built

with their customers, neighbors, and business partners.

With your support, they hope to rebuild Shumi Ramen and continue serving the community they love.

Every contribution, no matter how small, will make a significant difference in their journey to recovery.

Join Us in Rebuilding

Shumi Ramen was more than a restaurant; it was a symbol of love, dedication, and community. With your help, we can bring Shumi Ramen back to life and continue to share the joy of gourmet ramen with our beloved community. Thank you for your generosity and support during this challenging time.
