Do you love ramen? Can you slurp down a bowl of the stuff in what feels like record time? If you answered yes, we’ve got incredible news for you.
Ani Ramen and sponsor, Sun Noodle, are celebrating National Noodle Day on October 6 by hosting the fourth annual “Slurp. Sip. Repeat. Ramen Eating Contest” at Ani’s New Brunswick location. The event is poised to benefit the Ani Ramen Employee Hardship Fund.
The name “Ani” means brother and that brotherly mindset has inspired a philanthropic approach to business since the restaurant’s inception in 2015. From donating money to frontline workers during the brunt of the pandemic, to now creating a fund that provides safety and stability to their 200-plus employees, to say Ani cares about their community would be an understatement.
Future ramen champions can enter and find out more information here. Entry requires that you must be 18 years or older and make a minimum donation of $25 to the Employee Emergency Hardship Fund. Participants must enter by October 3. While the contest will no doubt be fun, the most impressive noodle slurpers won’t leave empty-handed.
$1,000 cash prize and a set of custom, golden chopsticks!
$500 cash prize.
$250 cash prize.
The winner will be decided by the most bowls of ramen eaten within the 15-minute window— or the first person to eat 10 bowls.
In addition to the noodle indulgence, drink specials and snacks will be available to guests. A special guest DJ will also be at Ani New Brunswick. It’s going to be a night of music, noodles, drinks and more.
The event will be live-streamed on Ani Ramen’s Facebook. You will not want to miss this.
