Beer ramen. Is it a thing? You may be tricked into thinking so, especially if you cross paths with En Sushi’s Facebook page. But really, it’s just the latest
culinary trend marketing gimmick by the Japanese restaurant, which opened in town earlier this year.
So, to be clear: There’s no actual alcohol in the beer ramen. It’s just that the noodles are dunked into an ice bath, served chilled in a sweet and savory broth, and topped with egg white foam to look like the real deal. For $22.90, you too can get in on the fad for a frosty pint with a side of crispy tori karaage, kaisen tofu (fried tofu), and kakiage tempura (tempura vegetables).
But if chugging your ramen broth and dipping your chopsticks into a mug is too strange for the purists among us, then there’s still the regular menu of typical Japanese grub like sushi, sashimi, grilled skewers, maki rolls, and donburi bowls. Plus good old Sapporo beers, of course.
