We started out of a house on the east side making five courses for 10 people, it turned into restaurant take-overs with 300 people waiting in line in 25 degree weather. We spent the pandemic shutdown of 2020 running takeout ramen to parked cars in a downtown alley. When we say we started a party and it turned into a restaurant, that's the truth.
We are now open in our new location inside of BEARDED IRIS Brewery at Sylvan Supply on Charlotte Ave and 42nd Ave in West Nashville.
EVERYTHING is made in house, noodles, broth, tare, toppings, & oils. We love the south cause we live in the south, so you'll see us using that southern magic in our bowls.
We take the food & hospitality a lot more seriously than we take ourselves.
We believe in こだわり kodawari, the Japanese word for commitment, and the obsessive pursuit of our craft. We believe that fast food can be great food. Slurp it hot, slurp it fast.
