Special Dinner With Silverlake Ramen DTLA
We're so excited to have Chefs Thomas Aono and Jitaek from Silverlake Ramen cooking for us!
Jitaek and Thomas have combined their passion and experience for food, and created Silverlake Ramen. After countless years of experience in kitchens all over the world, from Los Angeles to Japan, they strive to create perfect, well-balanced ramen dishes with natural ingredients. It’s food that is made with love! They are obsessed with ramen, and are excited to share that obsession with us.
Thomas moved to Japan with his family when he was 4 years old, and his favorite childhood food was ramen.
One day his heart followed his stomach and he decided he wanted to become a ramen master, to create his own ramen, one that blended the traditional with the contemporary. After knocking on the doors of almost every restaurant he was finally hired by a true ramen master, with 45 years of experience in the craft.
Thomas spent 5 years studying and learned how to make both broth and tare (sauce) from scratch. Once he had mastered the art of Ramen, he moved to LA teamed up with Jitaek to become part owner / ramen creator of Silverlake Ramen.
Jitaek started his first job as a dishwasher in LA when he was just 16 years old. He worked his way to become an executive chef at age 24. After 12 years in the restaurant world, he went on to open two sushi restaurants with little success.
Fortunately he decided to give it one last try in Silverlake, but this time he decided to focus on the food he loves the most: Ramen. The result is Silverlake Ramen!
