There Are Two Different Ramen Pop-Ups In Downtown Next Week


We've got not one, but two ramen pop-ups happening downtown Los Angeles this week.

First, There's going to be a pop-up ramen shop at Nest at WP24 at the Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles offering bespoke bowls of ramen.

There are only three chances, at the moment, to snag a bowl of this very tasty sounding ramen: Thursday, June 30; Thursday, August 4; and Thursday, August 25 from 5 to 9 p.m.

The bowls start with house-made ramen noodles in a broth made over the course of three days with pork bones and duck bones and chicken stock. Then, they add sesame, scallion, bean sprouts and sweet summer corn. That'll cost you $7, and you can add other toppings including chili-marinated bamboo shoots, market vegetables and Santa Barbara spot prawns.

Nest at WP24 is located at 900 W Olympic Blvd. in downtown Los Angeles, 213-743-8824.

There will also be a ramen-centric FEASTLY pop-up next week Tuesday, June 28 from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. in the Arts District. Chefs Luke Reyes and Phillip Frankland Lee will be previewing Oh Man! Ramen, slated to open this summer in Encino.

Guests will be able to try chicken wings in honey fermented chili glaze; salmon sashimi; chilled spicy noodles with steamed mussels, yuba, fermented chili oil, scallion, ginger and fried shallot; and lettuce with egg, avocado, crispy jowl, edamame and nori sesame ranch. That all comes family-style, and you'll get your own bowl of tonkotsu ramen, with braised pork belly, roasted pork shoulder, pickles shiitake mushroom and bonito. Drinks include Sapporo beer and a Tiki punch made with rum, ginger syrup, honey and lemon.

The location of this pop-up is in the Arts District, but the exact address is only revealed once you've purchased tickets. $65/person.
