Soul & Smoke Takes On Ramen-San! Chicago



Soul & Smoke Takes On Ramen-San on the North side of Chicago.  The barbeque brand headed by Chef Dandre Carter was this month’s Ramen-San collaborator.  The monthly series brings chefs like Carter on-site for one-of-a-kind pop-up dinners.

I went to Carter’s full-course dinners at the newly opened Ramen-San Lincoln Park location.  To attend the limited seating event a prepaid reservation for two is required.  As most of my regular readers know I’ve been trying to get out and about more in the city.  And I need to do a better job of making a priority of hanging with my girls.  But when I do get out oooh I’m outside.


Soul & Smoke Takes On Ramen-San! Chicago Dinner


I’m unsure how I started following Soul & Smoke on social media but I’m glad I did.  The Ramen-San collaboration dinner sent me to my happy place.  Though this was my first time dining at the Lincoln Park location.  I have been to the Ramen-San’s Deluxe Streeterville location a couple of times.  Ramen-San is a modern noodle spot that serves its food over a 90s hip-hop beat.  Now let me give you all the details of my dining experience bite by bite.

Thank you, Eloquii for gifting this beautiful Intarsia Column Dress.  I’m wearing a size 18/20.  I suggest sizing down for a closer-to-the-body fit as it has a ton of stretch.
