Ramenfest is back! A far cry from what was once known as a cheap, college student pantry staple ramen is currently taking the states by storm with new authentic shops popping up around the country. On Sunday, February 17th, Executive Chef Bill Kim will be inviting chefs from around the city to prepare their culinary interpretations of the 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. The event will include a sampling of each ramen and two drink tickets. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit Inspiration Kitchens, a non-profit organization that helps people who are affected by homelessness and poverty to improve their lives and increase self-sufficiency through the provision of social services, employment training and placement, and housing.
VIP tickets include: Early access into the festival at 11AM, unlimited ramen tastings, open bar curated by a local favorite (stay tuned!), custom ramen bowls, access to spirit tastings, limited edition Ramenfest 2019 t-shirt, unrestricted access to VIP Lounge, signed copy of Chef Bill Kim’s Korean BBQ Cookbook, and an urbanbelly gift certificate
General Admission tickets include: Unlimited ramen tastings beginning at 12PM, 2 drink tickets, access to spirit tastings, and an urbanbelly gift certificate
2019 Judges: To be announced!
