Ramen lovers, Arcadia just might be your new go-to spot. Chestnut Fine Foods & Provisions has introduced a nighttime concept, Water Chestnut, the restaurant's take on the noodle trend.
Chestnut, located at 4350 East Camelback Road, transforms into a ramen shop some nights and offers a diverse pan-Asian style menu from Arizona chef Jared Lupin. The menu features small plates such as house-made egg rolls, as well as ramen bowls.
For guests who choose the latter, there's a process. First, select a broth (vegan shio, garlic pork miso, or pork shoyu). Next, select a noodle. Then it’s time to add some protein. Guests can choose from pork, duck, chicken, or tofu. Finally, choose your add-ons, including nori, naruto, and soy eggs.
And don’t forget dessert. The ramen shop offers four: mango sticky rice, house made popsicle, matcha green tea ice cream, and black sesame seed ice cream.
