Ippudo, one of the best ramen spots in the city, is celebrating a decade of success in NYC (and 33 years in Japan). To mark the occasion, they'll be giving away 1,000 bowls of ramen on Tuesday (10/16) at their East Village location.
Per their website, they'll start serving up the free bowls at 11 a.m. (expect a line outside prior to that). And don't be picky, there's only one kind of bowl on the table: Ramen Zero. "We're paying homage to the original Ippudo ramen recipe from 1985," they explain, "when the brand was born in Hakata, Japan."
While they do offer a vegan ramen, this one ain't it. The Ramen Zero features "the original Tonkotsu pork broth with our signature dashi and thin noodles, topped with scallions, kikurage mushrooms, ground white sesame, and pork belly chashu."
One bowl per person, and they have some other rules, too: "We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who is hostile, aggressive, drunk, or lacking adequate hygiene."
Ippudo's East Village location is at 65 Fourth Avenue. [h/t Eater]
