I’ve always felt that there’s a strong connection between Streetwear fashion and Street Food, as they share a lot of similarities between them. Raw. Honest. To the point. And while ramen may not constitute street food in the most typical sense, it is one of those soulful comfort foods which is modest yet hard to do really well. So naturally, I am not all that surprised when I heard that esteemed fashion brand Mastermind will be opening a pop up restaur-shop for ramen noodles.
Especially with the abundance of pop up shops which have been popping up (sorry for my lack of vocabulary) recently, it almost seems gradual that culinary purveyors would be borrowing this concept as well. Mastermind JAPAN and ramen restaurant Chan So have teamed up to open a 3 day pop-up shop at Contemporary Fix January 8-10, 2011. Available are two different types of noodles, the Japan Black (pictured above) featuring horse mackerel and fatty Iberian pork, as well as the Japan Cool (pictured beow).
The Japan Cool is essentially a vegetarian’s delight with mushrooms, eggplant, roasted yams and advacdo. And after you finish the noodles, you are free to take the bowl home with you too.
