Ippudo Founder Shigemi Kawahara Pays a Visit to Sun Noodle's Ramen Lab to Offer His Blessing


The ramen brotherhood has been stopping by Ramen Lab during previews this week. Ramen King, Shigemi Kawahara of Ippudo fame paid a royal visit to the soon-to-open Sun Noodle Ramen Lab yesterday. The Sun team posted on Facebook:

We were honored to have the Ramen King, Kawahara-san from Ippudo New York visit our space today. Sharing the moments with people on the same mission is always invigorating. #ramenlab #sunnoodles #ippudo

When Eater checked in with the Ramen Lab team a few weeks ago about Con Ed woes, a staffer said all of the owners were in touch regularly about the issue and are friends. Proof that the ramen brotherhood is alive and well.
