Noodles & Ninjutsu: Silverlake Ramen Dives Into 'Naruto' Mania

In an exciting development for fans of both ramen and anime, Silverlake Ramen has joined forces with the beloved series "Naruto" for a nationwide restaurant collaboration. Spearheaded by experiential restaurateur Andy Nguyen of Happy Hours Group, this partnership promises to bring the world of "Naruto" to life at Silverlake Ramen locations across the United States.

The collaboration, which runs from March 30 to July 7, will see all Silverlake Ramen outlets in California, Nevada, Georgia, North Carolina, Washington, and Texas adorned with "Naruto"-themed décor and menu items. At the flagship store in Los Angeles (2927 Sunset Blvd.), fans can immerse themselves in the atmosphere of Ichiraku Ramen, a beloved eatery from the anime series, through exterior graphics and interior decorations.

One of the highlights of the themed menu is the incorporation of Silverlake Ramen's signature dish, the "Classic" Ramen, served with a special Narutomaki Fishcake. Customers can choose from two combo options: Combo one includes a "Naruto" and Silverlake Ramen collaboration headband, while combo two offers a T-shirt featuring original "Naruto" artwork. Additionally, exclusive "Naruto" merchandise such as T-shirts, hoodies, bags, hats, headbands, and themed dishware will be available for purchase.

Speaking about the collaboration, Andy Nguyen, Creative Director of Happy Hours Group, expressed his enthusiasm, stating, "Working with a series as iconic as 'Naruto,' I knew we would need to find an equally high-caliber restaurant group to build a successful partnership." Nguyen added, "Silverlake Ramen is the perfect partner to help bring Ichiraku Ramen to life. Ramen is such an important part of telling the 'Naruto' story, and this team is the best in the business."

The collaboration kicked off with a grand opening celebration on March 30 at the flagship store in Los Angeles, attended by Nguyen, "Naruto" executives, and eager fans. A limited number of "Naruto Onigiri" (Japanese rice balls) were distributed to customers on a first-come, first-served basis, adding to the festive atmosphere of the event.

This unique partnership between Silverlake Ramen and "Naruto" showcases the power of collaboration in delivering memorable experiences to fans. Whether you're a ramen enthusiast or a die-hard anime fan, this collaboration offers something special for everyone.
