ARIA, SF Korean Fried Chicken Icon Just Dropped Bulgogi Stir Fry Ramen!
We always get a feeling of nostalgia when we go in on a steamy cup of Nissin Cup Noodles. That first slurp and gulp always takes us back to our childhoods — whether it was an after-school meal or a late-night snack.
That sentiment is what inspired this Dream Cup Noodles collaboration.
Chef Charlie Kim of Aria Korean Tapas, a Korean fried chicken joint located in the heart of the Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco, runs the shop with his mother and father.
The former UCLA hockey player fondly remembers eating Nissin Cup Noodles after practice as his favorite meal of the day.
Now, as the owner of his own Korean restaurant, Kim’s love for Original Cup Noodles has come full circle, evidenced by this Bulgogi Cup Noodles dish.
Chef Kim stir fries bulgogi ribeye rolls with ramen noodles, garlic, and ginger until beef meets noodles in a medley of flavor. Kim finishes the cup with mozzarella cheese, stir fry kimchi, and a fried egg — a love letter to the foods of his youth.
