SoCal-based Silverlake Ramen opened recently at the Veranda shopping center in Concord. Seating is only available outside but the wraparound patio has quite a lot of sitting room. The Classic ramen I had with tonkotsu broth was better than expected. Check out their ramen selection here.
Puesto Mexican Artisan Kitchen & Bar, which we learned would be coming to the Veranda shopping center in Concord, is opening early next week Sunday, November 11th right next to the IMAX theater. Check out their Santa Clara menu here.
Thanks to a reader for sending word that Ko Cups, a “Korean bbq place that serves in bowls/ cups that frequents food trucks and antique Fair in Alameda” is coming to the Veranda shopping center in Concord next to Poke Bowl. Check out their menu here.
We founded Ko-Cups in 2016 to bring delicious Korean offerings to the food fair and farmer’s market scenes. We believe in quality ingredients and that our food ultimately speaks for itself; there is no success without flavor. We are based in the San Francisco Bay Area and surrounding cities.
Ko-Cups start off with a base of aromatic rice, the best Japchae (Korean noodles) you’ve ever tasted, and some crunchy seasonal vegetables. Choose your protein, then we top it with one of our flavorful sauces: Sweet & Spicy Chili, Hot Gochujang, or Mayo Mustard — your pick!
There is a lotgoing on at the Veranda shopping center in Concord these days and now Walnut Creek based Residual Sugar Wine Bar has opened as well, right next to Coffee Shop.

There is a huge outdoor patio area to the side as well as in front so the next time you find yourself in Concord I recommend dropping by to check this place out! 🍷
The SoCal-based shabu shabu restaurant Shabuya opened recently in the Veranda shopping center in Concord.

Coffee Shop has finally opened at the Veranda shopping center in Concord. With plenty of outside seating including a firepit with views of the automated fountain, they have chosen another great location to open. There are currently five cafes with more no doubt on the way. Check out the roasters they carry here.
Just in time for the end of a hot summer the ice cream on a stick shop Popbar recently opened at the Veranda shopping center in Concord. Check out their menu here. In addition to pops they also offer a unique gelatoShake “served in a milk-jug style cup with a chocolate dipped waffle cone overflowing with whipped cream”. Check it out here.
Poke Bowl opened recently at the Veranda shopping center in Concord in a small spot across from the movie theater. Plenty of outdoor seating. I tried locating their website without luck as poke bowl is pretty generic, does anyone know their website, FB or Insta?
Two kiosks selling cell phone cases and sunglasses popped up recently at the Veranda shopping center in Concord with what looks like more on the way in a different section of the mall. I wonder if they’ll stay open longer than the Liberty Bell Plaza kiosks did in Walnut Creek.
