Montreal is getting its first-ever ramen food festival next month with 24 participating restaurants. RAMEN RAMEN is set to touch down on October 11 where festivalgoers will be able to taste their way through Montreal with each restaurant introducing a featured ramen dish.

Each dish can then be voted on by the public on the RAMEN RAMEN Facebook page. The restaurant that receives the most likes will take home the People's Choice Award. Additionally, each member of the festival's jury will award their favourite spots at the end of the food fest. How does one become a member of this jury? Asking for a friend.

"RAMEN RAMEN is meant to be a celebration of this new reign and a desire to encourage the development of ramen offerings outside of Japan," Thien Vu Dang, co-director of RAMEN RAMEN said in a news release shared with MTL Blog.

A festival launch party will also take place on October 10 at the Coeur des Sciences de l'UQAM with live music, a whiskey tasting and a ramen kiosk.

Ramen lovers can purchase their RAMEN RAMEN passport for $5 at any participating restaurant or at the launch party. The passport earns you a 10% discount on each featured ramen at participating restos. An online interactive map will be available on the website at the beginning of October.
