Chow Down At Santa Monica Noodle Bowl Fest This Sunday At Viceroy Hotel:

Viceroy Santa Monica will ring in the Lunar New Year next Sunday, Feb. 10 with a fun event benefiting a good cause: Noodle Bowl Fest, which is set to be a celebration of good food, good drink, and good entertainment.

The three-hour feast at the luxury Ocean Avenue hotel will feature Asian soup noodles crafted by seven of Los Angeles’ hottest restaurants from 4-7 p.m.

Whist at Viceroy Santa Monica’s Executive Chef Tony DiSalvo is preparing Kimchi Sujebi, a traditional Korean noodle soup made with handmade dough.

Several traditional noodle houses will join DiSalvo including Din Tai Fung, the iconic San Gabriel Valley branch of the world-famous Taipei restaurant that will be making Niu Rou Mian, otherwise known as Taiwan’s most popular Beef Noodle Soup.

Rodded, a 40-year family-run restaurant in Thai Town, will offer the Komenkul family’s signature Duck Noodle Soup at the event, made with stewed duck and bean sprouts in a cinnamon-tinged soy broth.

Tsujita LA head Chef Kenta Ikehata of Little Osaka’s famed ramen shop will be creating his popular Tsukemen noodles, a dipping-style ramen simmered for 60 hours served with a Tonkotsu soup.

Additionally, a handful of restaurants that aren’t usually a part of the noodle game are also contributing their own take on noodles.

Maximiliano’s Chef and Owner Andre Guerrero will be showcasing a dish inspired by his mom, Filipino Chicken Noodle Soup (Sotanghon Manok), a chicken broth seasoned with Southeast Asian flavors and bean-thread noodles.

Chef David LeFevre of M.B. Post, a 2012 James Beard Award Semifinalist, Best New Restaurant and Best Chef (Pacific), will be featuring Oxtail and Beef Brisket Pho, a popular Vietnamese noodle dish.

Seoul Sausage Co., the winners of the third season of The Food Network’s “Great Food Truck Race,” will preview an exclusive dish for the event: Korean Army Noodles called “Budae Jigae.” But their version has a gourmet twist on this classic dish; spicy pork Seoul Sausage, braised pork belly, rice cake, ramen noodles, and roasted corn.

Also on the menu at Noodle Bowl Fest will be Singha Beer and a delicious craft cocktail courtesy of Karlsson’s Gold Vodka.

The cocktail, called “La La Land,” is comprised of Karlsson’s Vodka, Aperol, raspberry and white pepper syrup, fresh lemon juice, fresh cucumber juice, fresh mint, and Bitter Truth celery bitters.

But it’s not just about chowing down on copious amounts of food and drink.

Street Symphony is performing, and a percentage of the proceeds from the event will be donated directly to My Friend’s Place; a Hollywood-based charity dedicated to assisting and inspiring homeless youth to build self-sufficient lives.

Tickets for the event are $55 per person until the date of the event.

Discounted valet parking will be available at the Viceroy Santa Monica for $8 per car.

Viceroy Santa Monica is located at 1819 Ocean Avenue, Santa Monica.

Tickets are available at www.noodlebowlfest.com.
