Ramenfest is back! A far cry from what was once known as a cheap, college student pantry staple, ramen has taken the states by storm with new, authentic shops popping up all around the country. On Sunday, February 19th, Chef Bill Kim of urbanbelly and bellyQ will be inviting chefs from around the city to prepare their culinary interpretations of this classic dish. Twenty chefs will try their hand at ramen and you'll have the chance to taste them all and vote for your favorite!
A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit Inspiration Kitchens, a non-profit organization helping people affected by homelessness and poverty to improve their lives and increase self-sufficiency through the provision of social services, employment training, job placement, and housing.
VIP tickets include entry into Ramenfest one hour early, an additional drink ticket (3), and swag bag.
General Admission tickets include a sampling of each ramen and two drink tickets.
