Ben Puchowitz took home top honors in last night’s Hop Chef Philadelphia competition at Union Transfer. The Ommegang event pitted eight chefs against each other in a battle to make the best dish that paired well with the Ommegang beer that the chef drew. Puchowitz, who is the chef/owner of Cheu Noodle Bar gave the crowd and judges a preview of his upcoming Bing Bing, with smoked duck buns paired with Ommegang Rare Vos.
Cheu Noodle Bar is now serving its dinner menu for lunch and dinner. That means buns, pigtails and Cheu fries all day.
The popular Washington Square West restaurant has also added several new noodle dishes to its menu.
And the good news keeps on coming. Cheu will now be opening at noon on Saturdays and Sundays.
The ramen battleis back. On Monday, June 23rd, at 6:00 p.m., Cheu Noodle Bar hosts the second Ramen Rumble.
This month’s chefs competing for the title of best ramen are friends Scott Schroeder of South Philly Tap Room and American Sardine Bar against Nick Macri of Border Springs Farm.
For $25, you'll get two mini bowls of ramen, a beer and a voting card for you to decide who the ultimate winner is.
