The Story Of Us  

Our customers experience making noodles from scratch. The process of making ramen is similar to a story unfolding. Ours began when founders Manville Chan and Jeff Parsons saw an opportunity to create an experience for people to connect with each other.


Manville’s love for bringing others together through food led him to build a community dining pop-up in 2016 as a part-time gig while still at his full-time tech job. Exceptional customer demand led to the business expanding quickly.


Now you can join us on our journey to spread the joy, one slurpable bowl and

bonding moment at a time!
