One of Dallas’ Hottest Restaurants Takes the Foodie Ramen Mania to New Heights

Celebrity Chefs Up Their Noodle Game

Ramen — once a simple staple found in college dorms, now a full-blown foodie favorite.

Top Knot, the modern American restaurant with Asian roots perched above Uchi, is making sure your ramen bowls are anything but simple with the summer iteration of its ultra-popular Uncommon Ramen series.

For each event throughout the series, Top Knot collaborates with other chefs, brewers, and farmers to create unique ramen dishes. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from every bowl goes to Promise of Peace Gardens.

“The summer ramen series gives us a chance to create something fun and special for our community,” says Angela Hernandez, Top Knot’s chef de cuisine.

In other words, this is not the ramen of your college days.

The next installment on Monday, June 26, will feature chef Stephan Pyles of Flora Street Cafe and his sous chef, Josh Bonee. Pyles, who is considered the founding father of Southwestern cuisine, has created 22 restaurants in five cities over the past 30 years.
