Entrepreneurs, get your palates ready. The late-night foodie pop-up, Guchi’s Midnight Ramen (GMR), is hosting an exclusive event for the startup community next weekend.
For those of you unfamiliar, GMR is a series of pop-up dinners crafted by O Ya chef Yukihiro Kawaguchi (“Guchi”) and former O Ya chef Tracy Chang “to feed the food culture in Boston, one bowl at a time.” The meals, usually served in the wee hours of the night, feature handmade ramen noodles soaked in simmering broth and combined with pork, eggs and other delicious ingredients at the chefs’ whimsy.
Next weekend’s edition of GMR was organized by Adelphic Mobile co-founder Jennifer Lum, who has long been a fan of Guchi’s work at O Ya.
“I attended my first pop-up at No. 9 Park with Chef Barbara Lynch,” Lum told me of her first GMR experience. “I got to see the GMR crew in action in the kitchen, and I really enjoyed the food and overall concept…I thought that it would be a fun idea to bring people in the startup community together to enjoy GMR’s delicious food.”
Thanks to Lum, GMR’s next pop-up will serve 40 hungry members of the Boston startup community. The event takes place on Sunday, December 16th at 1 p.m. at Bocoup. Along with Lum, Boaz Sender of Bocoup and Drew Volpe of Locately are also hosting the meal.
Tickets cost $25 per person and go on sale Friday, December 7th at 1 p.m. Follow along on Facebook and Twitter for links to the ticket sales. Be warned — tickets to GMR events have been known to sell out in under a minute, so get your mouse at the ready.
In the past, GMR events have been held at popular Boston restaurants such as at restaurants like No. 9 Park, The Gallows, jm Curley and Sportello. For reviews and photos of recent GMR events, check out the following blog posts:
