West Philly’s Neighborhood Ramen is the latest Insta-based pop-up to tantalize us with secret locations, extremely limited seatings, and beautiful shots of steaming bowls of brothy goodness.
The itinerant soup chefs are Lindsay Steigerwald, a front-of-house veteran of Philly Japanese restaurants who’s currrently behind the bar at University City izakaya Cozara, and Jesse Pryor, currently in the kitchen at Cheu Noodle Bar.
Steigerwald, who is half Japanese, grew up with the cuisine, while Pryor discovered a love of ramen while working in the kitchen at Zahav and then moved over to Morimoto to work with Japanese ingredients.
Until recently, the only way to score a seat at their secret pop-ups was through DM. But on Monday, December 11th, they’re is taking over the kitchen at Garage Fishtown.
While the duo’s menus ostensibly focus on ramen — both miso-based and chintan style, made with clear broth that’s seasoned with sea salt (shio) or shoyu (Japanese soy sauce) — they’re also serving items like noodles, rice bowls, and Japanese pickles.
Check out the menu for Monday’s pop-up below, and score a bowl at Garage Fishtown starting at 5 p.m. and going till it’s gone.
Chintan Ramen (Shio or Shoyu) $10
Vegetarian Ramen $9
Yakisoba (noodle stir-fry) $9
Gyu Don (beef bowl) $6
Chicken Donburi (rice bowl) $6
Oshinko (pickled radish) $3
