Sacramento’s Kru Contemporary Japanese Cuisine, relocated 2 1/2 months ago from J Street to larger digs on Folsom Boulevard, just expanded its schedule. It’s now open Mondays, making it a seven-day-a-week operation. We stopped by for lunch the first Monday, and service and food seemed up to speed. A highlight was the umami-packed hot ramen, which starts with a miso broth and adds noodles, fried tofu and a Jidori egg, all of which alternated firm and soft in the right measure. This ramen also comes in a chicken version.
