Ramen Festival @ Japan Town SF

Too many people pinged me on this. I guess I need to set it up. 

Date: 7/19/2014

Time: 10:45am

Place: Japan Town (meet at the corner of Post and Buchanan)

From Bold Italic:

If you're a big fan of ramen – and I mean freshly made noodles with complex broth, not Maruchan instant –you'll want to get over to Japantown on July 19 and 20 for Ramen Street. As part of the J-Pop Summit, this event will feature six ramen purveyors from LA (TatsunoyaFujin Ramen, Mattou Seimen), Las Vegas (Monta Ramen), SF (Men Oh), and Japan (Horaiya)  setting up shop along Post Street hawking their unique noodley offerings, including a ramen burger. Check out the poster below for who's participating and what they'll be serving.

Ramen Yokocho Association has held similar events in LA and Vegas, but this will be the first of its kind in SF. Admission is free, but ramen is $8 a bowl. 

Will meet at the corner of Post and Buchanan.

  • Les T.

    I'm suggesting to all my attending friends to bring their own ramen bowl, to facilitate sharing, (In case you want to try several or all, but not eat 6-8 full bowls.)

    Thinking the ramen stalls will serve in disposable bowls.

    • Ro-nee

      Great idea, Les. Good looking people in your profile pix.

      July 16

    • Les T.

    It's time to update your RSVP now if you cannot make it. The Ramen Street will be at 1B on the last map. So we will be meeting at Post and Buchanan @ 10:45am and walk over there. BTW, make sure you bring cash for the ramen.

  • Carlo C

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
