Chefs Matthew Williams and Moishe Hahn-Schuman got their first big break for Ramen Gaijin as a pop-up at Woodfour Brewing in 2014. Five months later, they opened their successful brick-and-mortar just down the street. Now, the chefs are hoping to do the same for one of their employees.
On Nov. 14, the restaurant will host TacoUp, a pop-up featuring traditional Mexican food including tacos (natch), aguachiles, sopas and ceviches inspired by Mexico City. Behind the concept is Ruben Alcaraz, a cook for Ramen Gaijin, who will team up with Bravas bartender Adam Barta to pair craft tequila and mescal cocktails.
The meal is first-come, first-serve from 5 to 9p.m. Monday, Nov. 14, 2016. Details here.
Williams and Hahn-Schuman plan at least one more pop-up in the next few months, focused on the food of Northern Thailand with craft cocktail wizard Scott Beattie. Stay tuned for more details.
