Monohon Ramen Pop Up at ROUGE

Posted on January 26, 2016 by Kaja Kippenberg

As part of our tenth anniversary celebrations last November we hosted a Monohon Ramen Pop Up at ROUGE. Monohon Ramen founder Ian Wheatley offered a special dish, Abura Soba, 'a soupless ramen, made up of thick chewy noodles served with a sesame oil based sauce and toppings include char siu (slow braised pork), menma (seasoned bamboo shoots), beansprouts, a slow poached egg (onsen tamago) and many more ingredients, giving you every inch of noodles coated with creamy egg yolk, sauce and other yummy goodness.' ( The evening was a big, soldout success and we will repeat the happy experience this Sunday 31st January and on Sunday 6th February. There are still a few tickets available for the 6th February, but they go really fast. You can buy the tickets at edible experiences. Below some images from the first Monohon Ramen Pop Up:
