Eat Ramen/Help Japan will be a gathering of top local chefs and eaters as they celebrate the craft of ramen while helping to feed the survivors of the Japan earthquake and tsunami.
What better time than now to throw the first ramen-off in the Twin Cities, and help the native land that inspires the dish? On Thursday, July 21st a gaggle of local chefs will come together at the Create Catering Dining Studio with their own signature ramen dish to be sampled by eaters and judged by a panel of experts in the hopes of earning Top Ramen honors. Of course we have Masu and moto-i competing, but can Russell Klein of Meritage and Jack Riebel of Dakota crank out the goods? Let's face it, ramen/noodle soups have long been the late-night sustenance for many chefs and most are just itching for a reason to cook something new.
WHAT: Ramen-off! Come sample chef-created ramen dishes and see what's evolving in the world of noodles. Each chef will sample their signature ramen, created with ramen donated by Sun Noodle, in an effort to win bragging rights and a fabulously crafty ramen crown. DJ NAK will help set the tone, and there will be beer/beverages for purchase.
Cost is $10 for entrance, which guarantees one bowl of ramen. Additional bowls may be purchased at the event.
WHY: Second Harvest Japan
On-street and free lot parking will be available.
