A famed Ramen restaurant from Las Vegas will be making it's home in Nashville soon. While it was sad to see Donut + Dog leave, it will be making room for Shakku Ramen.
The 24 hr Las Vegas location is so popular it's hard to get reservations. They'll be opening up May 21st at 2127 Belcourt Ave. And this ain't your college dorm room ramen.
They serve traditional ramen dishes, and less traditional Japanese fried rice, dumplings, ramen bowls with a special made-from-scratch pork belly broth that marinades for 24 hours.
They also have a Shokku Ramen Shingami Challenge. This super-hot dish must be eaten in 8 minutes. If you can do it, you don't pay and you go on the Wall of Warriors.
Made special for the Music City location will be a BBQ brisket ramen bowl w/ crunchy potato fries, pickles, house-pickled onions, Tonkotsu pork broth with BBQ spices.
This blog is making me so damn hungry. Can't wait.
