Zen Box Izakaya's co-owner and chef, John Ng's reputation for ramen has spread beyond Minnesota's borders. On April 25 he will travel to Nashville to compete in XL Ramen Fest. The event benefits the Pablove Foundation, which combats childhood cancer. The event has invited six of the best ramen chefs in the US to compete and Ng is one of them. Hopefully, this means the chefs will in turn head to Minneapolis when Zen Box Izakaya hosts its Ramen Attacks! event later this summer.
