Join us on Monday, January 13th, 2020 at West Egg Cafe for a six-course pop-up dinner from the award-winning Japanese soba master Mutsuko Soma. Chef Soma will step out of the kitchen at Kamonegi, her critically lauded Seattle restaurant, to offer 80 Atlanta diners a rare Japanese experience. In addition, $5 from every ticket sold will go to Atlanta-based charity Giving Kitchen, which provides emergency assistance to food service workers. As a special treat, we have enlisted Patrick Nguyen, better-known as the live-artist Dozfy, to provide a few surprises.
Named Food & Wine Magazine’s 2019 Best New Chef & EATER Seattle’s Best Chef of 2017, chef Soma is traveling to Atlanta from Seattle to serve handmade soba noodles unlike anything ever offered in Atlanta!

ABOUT THE CHEF
Mutsuko Soma was born and raised in Tochigi, Japan. As a young woman, she moved to Seattle to continue her culinary journey. After working at a number of highly regarded restaurants, chef Soma returned to Japan to learn the art of traditional soba noodles, a painstakingly made buckwheat noodle that chef Soma makes by hand! To help spread the tradition imbued upon her by her grandmother, chef Soma returned to the states and eventually opened Kamonegi to both critical & commercial acclaim. Now she is coming to Atlanta to do the same, albeit for just one night.
