NYC Favorite Ivan Ramen Will Host A Pop-Up At Roy Choi's POT
A New York ramen lord is descending upon L.A. for two days this month, so get ready to slurp.
Ramen master Ivan Orkin has been blowing the minds of NYC noodleheads at Ivan Ramen for a while now, and he's finally bringing his delicious skills to the West Coast with a pop-up, according to Eater LA. The two-day ramen event will take place on Sunday, October 11 and Monday, October 12, and will be hosted at Roy Choi's POT restaurant in Koreatown.
The $50 prix fixe meal will kick off with small plates of uni and country ham—Orkin's version of the classic ham-and-eggs combo. Diners will then choose between traditional ramen styles like mazemen, shio and shoyu, or opt for Orkin's famed breakfast ramen. The meal's finale will include a kochujang caramel and vanilla ice cream slider. Yes, please.
Reservations for the pop-up can be made online—but you better act fast, as they're already filling up.
