Nagi Ramen, world renown noodle shop, is opening it's new location in Palo Alto during a soft launch, specifically for Columbia alumni. Invite your friends and family for a dinner on the house! Limited tickets available. Nagi Univeral Noodle Ramen is a small chain of Japanese ramen restaurants located in Japan, USA, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and the Philippines. Nagi was founded in 2004 by Mr. Satoshi Ikuta at the age of 27. Mr. Ikuta, who had trained in various classic Hakata ramen shops, began with the practice known as aida kari – borrowing bar space one day a week to run a guerilla ramen shop. Ikuta pulled his indie ramen up by the bootstraps, first winning a contest for a spot in Tokyo’s famous Tachikawa Ramen Square noodle theme park, then opening a successfully shop in Shibuya before opening another shop in Shinjuku Golden Gai in 2008.
