Ippudo is celebrating Hakkaisan Day, August 8, by serving up ramen inspired by Hakkaisan sake, created by ramen master Fumihiro “Foo” Kanegae. Hakkaisan is a sake brewery known as “Eight Peaks,” and is famous for its top quality sake.
Kanegae’s sake ramen features a broth made with Hakkaisan sake and the chashu meat on top is marinated in sake kasu that is imported directly from Hakkaisan Brewery. The miso-style ramen has a clear soup, and the release stated, “You will experience nothing less than a completely new type of ramen!”
There is a vegetarian option with egg noodles, and the ramen is paired with a glass of Hakkaisan sake.
Sake Bar Ippudo will offer a special selection of Hakkaisan sakes beginning at 5 p.m., and there will be a raffle each hour to give customers a chance to win a Hakkaisan sake cup.
The event will take place at Ippudo Westside on August 8 from 11 a.m. to 8:08 p.m. For $8.88 customers will enjoy a bowl of Hakkaisan ramen and a small glass of Hakkaisan Tokubetsu Junmai (not including tax and gratuity). There are no reservations and portions are limited and available on a first come, first serve basis.
