Call it a delicious coincidence: ramen chains Kinton and Kenzo are both setting up shop on Queen Street West, likely within a few months of each other. The exact location of the new Kinton outlet is yet to be confirmed. Kenzo, however, will be moving into the former Murray’s Sandwich shop at 671 Queen West. (The coincidence was so unusual that we briefly pegged the Murray’s location to Kinton instead of Kenzo.) It’s great news for west-enders, who’ll no longer have to trek downtown to slurp a top-notch bowl of noodles.
