Discover Seoul: BIGBANG SeungRi’s Japanese Ramen Shop

‘My SF9 ScrapBook!’ Event Participant List

Think dining alone is for the sad and lonely? If you ask BIGBANG‘s SeungRi, he might tell you that’s the best way to enjoy your meal!

Last December, the singer opened the first location of his Japanese ramen shop, Aori Ramen, in Gangnam’s plush Cheongdam district (nearby exit 4 of Apgujeong Station).

The restaurant is centered around tonkotsu ramen, traditional Hakata-style ramen with a pork-based broth. Ingredients include chashu pork belly, braised egg, and crushed garlic.

The Place In Between

Influenced by Ichiran and Japan’s other customized-to-order ramen shops, Aori Ramen guests begin by filling out a checklist detailing how they’d like their ramen – with options ranging from portion size to extra toppings. Diners can also select various side dishes and popular Japanese beverages like Asahi beer, green tea, and Ramune soda.

But perhaps the most exciting part about a trip to Aori Ramen is enjoying your meal alone! Each guest gets their own private booth that has a special service window that limits their interaction with the wait staff when their ramen is finally served.

This allows diners to focus on and enjoy the unique flavor of the ramen – and sneak in their BIGBANG dolls for company. And for those VIPs who arrived empty-handed, the restaurant occasionally offers unique anime-inspired merchandise for you to take home.

The Cheongdam location may be the first, but as of this week, it isn’t the only Aori Ramen shop in Seoul. After opening locations in Busan, Osaka, and Tokyo, SeungRi has added a second Aori Ramen nearby Gangnam Station!
