Our story

About us

Our origins

Generational influence

Kit Wong started his culinary career as a bus boy in the restaurants of New Orleans, and has worked his way up one of the most challenging career ladders to where he is today. Throughout the years, he has passed his knowledge and experience down to children and grandchildren, and that legacy continues with Boru.

The Wong family group of restaurants have been icons in the Baton Rouge community for the last 15 years, starting with Ichiban. Our goal is to foster a sense of family in our restaurants, and give you the feeling as if you were at the table with our family.

Our passion

Authentic Tokyo Ramen

Ramen is synonmous with Japanese culture, and Tokyo is the the home of some of the best ramen in the world. Executive chef Patrick Wong has trained not only in Tokyo kitchens, but also in Manhattan at Ramen Shack under world renown ramen chef Keizo Shimamoto.

Our future

Investing in Baton Rouge

Since founding Ichiban Sushi 15 years ago, we have continued to invest back into the community by opening additional restaurants, and providing the people of Baton Rouge a chance to experience authentic culture as it’s meant to be experienced. 


Boru’s location in the newly revitalized Electric Depot is the latest example of our commitment to a better Baton Rouge. We wanted to support the revitalization efforts of Downtown by providing new and unique places to eat with Boru and Sweet Society.
