Last night was an ode to the upcoming I ♥ Japan event featured in NYC Food Film Festival’s lineup. Chef Keizo Shimamoto, star of the film Ramen Dreams and blogger of Go Ramen! arrived from Tokyo for the festival.
The NYC Food Film Festival team gave him a Brooklyn welcome. First stop was Dassara, a ramen shop inspired from Chef Shimamoto’s blog. Here, Chef Shimamoto enjoyed his first bowl of lamb ramen.
As the night continued, a Brooklyn bar hop ensued with flaming drinks, egg cocktails, and a whiskey tasting. For a photo montage, check out Chef Shimamoto’s Brooklyn Ramen/Bar Crawl post.
I ♥ Japan goers—you are in for a treat.
