Sakes Help Make Virtual Team Building Ramen Classes Even More Interactive

Updated: Jul 31, 2020

We love when our ramen experience visitors return with new friends, a new team or even the same team! That was the case with Melissa Zhang from Coinbase. She joined two previous in-person ramen experiences. And recently, she and her team joined us for a virtual team building class: ramen + sake tastings! "I've done a few events with Manville before...all in person," Melissa told us. "We really enjoyed those. When we were thinking about another team event right now, I knew Manville offered virtual classes now too."

Ramen meal kits were delivered to Melissa and her team. The Story of Ramen also delivered four samples of sakes for a tasting. The team learned about ingredients to take ramen noodles and then how to make them. Next - a few lessons about sake, its origins and how to select the sake that best suits your taste. After the interactive tastings, it was finally time to assemble the ramen noodle kit. "I liked the part where the sake tasting was in the middle," Melissa said, "There was more interaction with the sakes. Then, we did the making of the ramen."
