Otaku South Welcomes Four Noted Chefs for 'Extra Large' Ramen Event

No limit to this event!! I plan to arrive about 4pm or so... call me when you arrive...

US chefs from NYC, Atlanta and Chicago will be joining Otaku South owner Sarah Gavigan!

From the Nashville Scene:

Sarah Gavigan, Nashville's queen of ramen, has devised a splashy new twist for her latest series of pop-up ramen events, Otaku South.

She's calling the it "Extra Large," and it's set for 3 to 8 p.m. Saturday, April 20, at Marathon Music Works. The event takes place on Record Store Day, so there will be live music, as well.

The lineup includes Guy Wong (Miso Izakaya, Atlanta), Akiko Moorman (The Gohan Society, New York), Phillip Foss (El Ideas, Chicago) and Dennis Lange (Den-Chan, Atlanta).

Admission to the party will be free. Ramen bowls (available in three varieties) and a mixed yakitori plate are all $12 each. There will be a full cash bar.

    We went, we bought, we ate, we hung out. Since I don't know anyone else in the group we didn't interact with the group, afaik. Mr. Harris, my lunch date and partner in crime and poetry, said this was the best ramen he's ever eaten. My previous ramen experience is restricted to cube-farm lunches from the microwave. Smaller portions, higher prices, nicer tablecloths and floral centerpieces than at the cube farm, fer sher. I left a box of my free-range, no-drug, no hormone, no additive country eggs from my happy hens with Sarah. Hope she likes them.

      I think I saw you sitting at the table across from me. I remember someone with eggs. Glad you enjoyed the ramen. Next time call or text. We stayed for a couple hours.

      How about this: Every time I attend a WTP event I'll bring eggs. The "girls" work hard to lay them, they are proud of them, and I am proud of the girls and of their eggs. Any foodie will recognize the superiority of free-range eggs from happy hens over the solvent-dipped long-storage eggs from scrawny caged leghorn hens, and with a donation to the "feed the chickens fund" you can take home a box to cook for yourself.

      This looks so good!

    I checked with the owner Sarah, you can but (not necessary) pre-purchase food tickets online. It may save you some wait time getting your food by purchasing in advance. Plus, it will give them a better idea of the number of attendees to anticipate.

      Great ideas, and thanks for checking, Rose. We have a schedule overlap, so depending on how long the 2pm meetup lasts, we'll be with you...eventually.
