Ivan Orkin is a dude from Long Island who quit his teaching job, moved to Japan, and started cooking pretty great ramen. But on Tuesday, July 17th, he’ll be cooking what is (hopefully) pretty great ramen at Momomfuku Noodle Bar in Manhattan’s East Village. He’ll start at 5:30 pm and he’ll finish when the product is gone. Expect crowds. Because, dudeness.
As first reported by Momofuku’s “Long Play” Tumblr, Orkin will be serving the following three ramen:
All three dishes will cost $16, Momofuku’s Sue Chan confirmed to The Price Hike. That’s the same price as Momofuku’s classic ramen. And that’s not too much pricier than the ¥750-¥1000 ($10-$13) noodles that Orkin serves at Ivan Ramen in Rokakoen and Ivan Ramen Plus in Kyodo. So unless you’re planning on moving to Japan anytime soon, we’re calling this one-night-only-event a STRONG BUY. A version of the regular Noodle Bar menu will also be available.
