Event – “Catch the Legendary SANUKI Udon Noodle Master!” by SANUKI Project SEP7-8 – we’ll be there

Thx to Mike L for this…

2-Day Only Special Event!

Prepare for a rare opportunity to try authentic, handmade Japanese noodles made in front of your eyes by an award-winning SANUKI Udon noodle artisan – right in the heart of Times Square! The two-day event is hosted as a collaboration between SANUKI Project, a volunteer organization whose mission is to create a SANUKI Udon craze here in New York, and Roppongi Inakaya, the world-renowned “Robata-yaki” (a traditional Japanese grill) restaurant.

On September 7th (Weds) and 8th (Thurs), Inakaya will serve 100 special SANUKI Udon meals (Regular$13/Half $7/Dinner Course$47) for lunch (11:30am – 2:30pm) and dinner (5:00pm – 11:00pm). For this two-day event, SANUKI Project has invited Osamu Miyoshi, one of the foremost SANUKI artisans and the first chef to receive the highly renowned Agricultural Minister’s Award five times in Japan. Mr. Miyoshi will perform a noodle-making demonstration, after which the noodles will be cooked and served fresh at your table!
