We got to sample 3 different ramens that Chef Gabriel Medina specially prepared for us. I'm no food critic nor am I a ramen connoisseur so all I'm going to say is, they were all delicious! Personally, I liked the seafood ramen the best. I'm typically not a fan of seafood noodle soups but, this one won me over. While tasty, I found the other two broths bit salty for my palate.
Before the tasting commenced, Chef Medina made it a point that the ramens he prepared were by no means traditional, rather his creative interpretation of it. I just enjoyed this event because I got to taste 3 very different kinds of ramen in one seating. Events like this makes me hopeful that one day Houston could potentially have a true ramen shop.
This tasting was $30 inclusive of tax and tip. If you would like more information about this group, visit their website or join their Facebook group.
