Once relegated to low-priced instant food status, ramen has transformed itself into a sought after Japanese comfort food, especially in New York City. There are dozens of ramen noodle restaurants in the City that serve a wide variety of flavors to a diverse audience. Today’s noodle boom is a great way to discover the Japan’s broad flavor spectrum, with each region boasting unique ingredients and preparation techniques.

Masahiro Nakano, Director, Public Relations, Shinyokohama Ramen Museum, J. Kenji Lopez-Alt, Managing Editor, Serious Eats, explore how this Japanese staple has gained traction outside Japan and the future they see for New York’s noodle lovers. Moderated by Jordana Rothman, Food & Drink Editor, Time Out New York.

Followed by a ramen tasting and reception.
