We had lunch at Himawari today and found out about a heavily advertised event that will be on Sat, March 12 starting at 5 pm at the Zoe Nightclub in San Jose. Chefs Kumao Arai (Ramen Halu), Masao Takahashi (Himawari) and Tsutomu Higashi (Maruichi) will give a live "ramen performance." I can only guess this might be like some kind of Iron Chef thing. Also included will be a ramen eating contest, a short film called "Ramen Life," taiko performance, and djs. $20 admission will get you ramen bowls from the three chefs plus appetizer; $10 admission does not include food. More info is at the link below.
Unfortunately we have other plans for that evening, but if anyone goes it would be great if you could post on Chowhound and tell us what went down.
