Otaku South EXTRA LARGE 2 – a giveaway!

If you saw my post on Monday with the round up of food & drink events happening here in Nashville this month, then you saw Otaku South’s EXTRA LARGE in the mix. What I didn’t share in that post was this  awesome lineup of participating chefs:

Sarah Gavigan/ Otaku South NASHVILLE

Shigetoshi Nakamura/ Sun Noodle & Ramen Lab NEW YORK

Edward Lee/ Milkwood & 610 Magnolia LOUISVILLE

Yuji Haraguchi/ Yuji Ramen NEW YORK

Mihoko Obuni/ Mibo Loves Ramen ATLANTA

Jessica Benefield/ Two Ten Jack NASHVILLE

Akiko Moorman/Gohan Society NEW YORK

Seriously, I’m super stoked about this group! How in the world do I decide which bowl of ramen to eat??? Hmmm, I guess the smartest plan would be to round up 6 friends so the 7 of us can get one bowl from each and pass around….
