Get ready for scary driving conditions this weekend, because we all know how Phoenicians get when it rains. And if you haven't seen the forecast, there's going to be a lot of it this weekend.
On the upside, you can look forward to a pretty sweet deal this weekend at Tempe's newest ramen shop, Umami. Buy yourself a bowl of steamy miso ramen with pickled bamboo shoots, scallions, spinach, carrot flowers, fish cake, and seaweed and you can get another bowl for the really affordable price of -- free.
All you have to do is show up, order, and mention "Rainy-Day Ramen" to get the deal. It's a perfect opportunity to look like the kind of really generous friend that takes a pal out to lunch or dinner on a lazy, rainy weekend -- when really you're just cashing in on a hot deal.
Umami allows diners to build their own ramen starting with your choice of broth: shio (sea salt), shoyu (soy), miso and tonkotsu (pork and chicken bone). You can then load it up with proteins such as chicken, charshu (or pork belly), tofu and spam in addition to toppings like egg, corn, pickled ginger, cabbage, scallions, and bean sprouts.
You can also build your own bento box and choose from other noodle dishes including soba, match and udon.
The "Rainy-Day Ramen" promotion will run now through Sunday, November 24 and is available at lunch and dinner.
