What we're about

Welcome to the NYC Ramen Enthusiasts Club. This Meetup group, formed in 2017, is dedicated to ramen fans, supporters, devotees, as well as aficionados. The club is built on values of being open-minded, progressive, kind, and hungry. The goal is to foster a sense of community through food and friendship.

We will go to dinner once a month, or once every two months. Each dinner will be limited to a small group.

Rules: Members must bring cash, you cannot skip a dinner if you RSVP, or change your RSVP if you cannot make it within 48 hours to be courteous to others. Those who cannot follow this simple rule will be removed from the group---so sorry, can't have last minute cancellations and no shows with a dinner meetup. Thank you!

Dinner at Ivan Ramen-5-Year Anniversary Party (with Raffle)!

Needs a location

The NYC Ramen Enthusiasts is turning 5 years old! For this special evening, there will be a couple of raffle items and other fun surprises!

It's challenging to summarize the accomplishments of Chef Ivan Orkin in a paragraph. A native New Yorker who received his a degree in Japanese and at the famed Culinary Institute of America, Chef Orkin opened Ivan Ramen in 2007, bringing his love of ramen back home. In 2013, Orkin published a vivid story of his experiences as an owner of a revered Tokyo ramen shop (among other stories) in Ivan Ramen: Love, Obsession, and Recipes from Tokyo's Most Unlikely Noodle Joint . At Ivan Ramen, guests can enjoy his decadent Triple Pork Triple Garlic Mazemen or take a lighter route with his flavorful bowls of Tokyo Shoyu (soy sauce flavor) or Tokyo Shio (salt flavor).

Please be on time and make a commitment to following all safety guidelines with bringing your vaccination card. And please bring cash. Individual checks may be possible.
