Tampopo (Juzo Itami, 1985)
Paired with: Shio-Koji Ramen from Aedan Fermented Foods

Tampopo is a classic surrealist food comedy set at a truck stop ramen shop. The heroine, Tampopo ("Dandelion") is a widow struggling to keep her ramen shop going. Two passing truck drivers take her under the wing and, through a series of subplots and antics, Tampopo learns the tricks, skills, and recipes she needs to make her ramen the best in the region. Truly a food classic and not to be missed!

We hope you will enjoy this sneak preview of the film, a short lesson on how to eat ramen:

The films continue throughout the weekend! Join us:
