Two things that are big in Japan are ramen and battles waged on a colossal scale. While Toronto isn’t forecasted to expect a showdown between Godzilla and Mothra this year, we can look forward to a clash of two culinary titans. On August 18th at the Momofuku Complex, Chef Hans Vogel of Momofuku’s Noodle Bar Toronto and Chef Chris Jang of A-OK Foods will be sharing a kitchen for one night only to see who is truly the city’s reigning ruler of ramen in the Momofuku Ramen Battle. Each chef will be preparing a variety of noodle dishes, buns and more (check out the menu here) and reservations are highly recommended. Don’t miss your chance to see this foodie battle royale, make your resos online or by phone at 647-253-8000.
