      Just received my postcards and they are wonderful. Will be framed for our kitchen. Best of luck in your venture.

      Sounds like a fun project - I've been meaning to get to your pop-up restaurant for a long time and am looking forward to this! I noticed that the website doesn't mention where the meals will be, though the NYTimes mentioned the Whole Foods on Houston. Is that set or are you still working on confirming the space?

    Hand-crafted Mazemen Bowl - Please see our recent update for photos! We would like to present one of our hand-crafted mazemen bowls to those who back us at this tier. These bowls were specially designed by a craftsman in Utsunomiya, Japan for serving mazemen. They are part of a limited set made specially for YUJI Ramen. Because they are fragile, we are very hesitant to ship this reward and would much prefer our backers at this tier collect this reward and receive our thanks in person.
