A Popup Dining Series

In celebration of our current exhibition “The Art of the Ramen Bowl”, JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles invites you to dine at a delicious pop-up series showcasing the diverse flavors of Japanese ramen. From May through July, guests will be able to pair their visit to the exhibition with a trip to our fifth-floor restaurant space to experience the “residencies” of world-class ramen artisans. Scroll down for details.

Tsujita Miso Ramen
Keika Ramen
Bannai Kitakata Ramen
Mengyo Ramen
Butayama Ramen
Aburado Abura soba
Machida Shoten Ramen

For approximately 14 weeks, seven different ramen concepts will proudly represent a variety of regional ramen types (including Tokyo, Kumamoto, Fukushima, and Yokohama), as well as other ramen styles popular throughout the nation. To further bring the exhibition to life, the pop-up dining space will also be serving ramen in authentic Mino ceramic domburi bowls, similar to those showcased in the gallery from a region famed for its ceramics production for over 500 years.

For lunch, dinner, or an afternoon pick-me-up, it’s a rare chance to sample diverse ramen styles and deepen your understanding of a Japanese culinary tradition, all while relaxing in our re-opened restaurant space with sweeping views from Hollywood to downtown. Warning: after one bowl, you may need to return all summer long to feed your ramen obsession!
