ART + RAMEN

At the Ramen Project, we want you to have a dining experience that involves all your senses. Apart from the food, we have tried to make the entire experience as aesthetically pleasing as possible.

 

On the back of the instruction card, we have also included a poster of an art-piece that we find really interesting. 

Over time we will keep changing these posters to keep sharing art that we like. As an ode to the culture and food of Japan, we chose three masterpieces by three Japanese artists.

We hope these tastefully selected posters find a space in your studies, walls, or pin-up boards.
