Every now and then, it’s good to have a meal that lasts three-hours where you can shoot the breeze with friends over great food. It’s even better when the meal consists of seven noodle courses. The Noodle Bowl Fest takes place in the Whist dining room at the Viceroy Santa Monica on Feb. 10th and will feature a mix of traditional Asian noodle dishes and some original twists on old favorites. Offering traditional noodles will be the iconic Din Tai Fung (Taiwanese Beef Noodle Soup), Thai Town’s Rodded (Duck Noodle Soup) and Little Osaka’s Tsujita LA (Japanese Tsukemen). The other noodle artists consist of some of Los Angeles’ best chefs featuring Maximilano’s Chef Andre Guerrero (Filipino Chicken Noodle Soup), James Beard Award Semifinalist Chef David LeFevre of M.B. Post (Vietnamese Oxtail and Beef Brisket Pho), Great Food Truck Race winners Seoul Sausage Co. (Korean Army Noodles) and Whist Executive Chef Tony DiSalvo (Korean Noodles).
Part of the proceeds from the Noodle Bowl Fest will be donated to My Friend’s Place, a Hollywood-based charited dedicated to assistant and inspiring homeless youth to build self-sufficient lives. Street Symphony, a non-profit organization that works with the mentally ill and homeless, is comprised of members from the LA Philharmonic and will also be performing.
Although the even is sold out you can still put yourself on the waitlist and keep your fingers crossed that you might be enjoying some amazing noodles this Sunday.
