JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles Salon, Level 5
JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles’s popular Movie & Bites series’ new program features the debut episode of the Japanese serialized drama, “Goddess of the Line: Journey to the Ultimate Ramen!” (Gyoretsu no Megami - Ramen Saiyūki) [Length: 45 minutes]. This new Japanese television series is based on the popular manga in which the main character, Tatsumi Serizawa, is the owner of a ramen restaurant that draws long lines of customers every day. She is also a food consultant and gives a jump-start to struggling or financially distressed ramen shops. One day, customer Yutori Shiomi tells her that the ramen she ordered – a new item on the menu – was not delicious. She applies for a job with Serizawa and promises, despite her lack of professional experience, to help to improve her ramen.
The screening will be followed by a simple recipe demonstration and ramen tasting, featuring toppings that can be used to take your ramen at home to the next level. The event will provide cooking tips and recipes for making the most popular ramen toppings: seasoned eggs (ajitama) and braised pork chashū.
Guests will receive take-home ramen kits to try on their own.
*Japanese dialogue with English subtitles.
