Officials from a growing ramen business were in Waltham Wednesday to transfer a liquor license for a new location in a small bay near Moody and High Streets.

Waku Waku plans to open at 456 Moody Street, last occupied by Pollo Club.

Waku Waku already has a location in Boston, with another location opening next month in Harvard Square, according to manager Henry Wong, who attended Bentley [left in photo]. 

There is no open date currently for the 900 square foot Waltham location, but Henry said he hoped to open within the next three months.

Pollo Club opened in 2019, marketed as “a cool and hip chicken restaurant.” 

Like its predecessor, a taco and BBQ restaurant, Pollo Club failed to catch fire and closed earlier this year.
