Ramen fans can purchase the RAMEN RAMEN passport for $5 at any participating restaurant which will allow them to take advantage of a 10% discount on each featured dish.

Essentially, if you foresee yourself devouring a lot of ramen noodle dishes, you should consider the passport.

RAMEN RAMEN says the event is already generating “a lot of buzz,” as there are already almost 40,000 subscribers to the Facebook event.

“Ramen, the most popular hobby in Japan, has overtaken sushi among international foodies
in terms of popularity and coolness,” says Thien Vu Dang, co-director of RAMEN RAMEN.

“In recent years, the quality of its offerings has grown dramatically in many cities around the world, supported by a growing group of fanatics. RAMEN RAMEN is meant to be a celebration of this new reign and a desire to encourage the development of ramen offerings outside of Japan.”

The event is organized by YATAI MTL, the non-profit organization behind Montreal’s popular Japanese street food festival.
