Traditional Ramen with a Coastal Twist Now Available at The Pantry in Orange Beach

As the winter chill begins to blanket our beautiful Orange Beach shores, it’s the perfect time to cozy up with our favorite comfort foods. And what could be more comforting than a hearty bowl of Ramen brimming over with heartwarming flavor? As Jack Frost rolls in, we’re excited to roll out our newest form of Good Food To-Go™: a line of traditional Japanese Ramen with a coastal twist, available exclusively at The Pantry at The Wharf. It’s a collaborative creation you’ll want to savor all season long.

Ramen’s Dream Team

Ramen, like most meals, is better when shared. To create our line of rich, complex flavors, Chef David Pan has teamed up with two of the area’s best culinary minds and creators: Jonathan Kastner and Tyler Braun. Both experienced culinary creators from Lafayette, Louisiana, Kastner and Braun spent years working their way across some of the best award-winning kitchens in the world before landing back in Orange Beach; Kastner as the owner and Executive Chef of the former Anchor Bar, and Braun as a Chef Consultant in Fairhope.

The pair recently co-founded Southern Chili Lab, an Orange Beach-based company that creates fermented hot sauces in a range of unique and dynamic flavors. Concoctions like the Black Garlic Sambal, Southern Chili Lab’s spin on a traditional Southeast Asian Chili Sauce, are adding local flair to our line of diverse Ramen flavors as our own Chef David Pan uses his culinary genius to source and combine fresh ingredients into bowls of unmatched taste and texture.

Traditional Meets Local

Our new Ramen specials are a perfect blend of authentic Japanese traditions and local flair. Each day, we’ll serve up a delectable bowl of classic Japanese flavors – think Shio, Shoyu, and Miso – with a tasty protein twist. We’re kicking things off with a Shio Chicken Ramen soup topped with tender chicken thigh, ramen egg, sweet roasted corn, green onions, pickled radish, and Southern Chili Lab’s incredible Chili Crisp.

More Than Just a Meal

At $14 a quart, each serving is a feast for 2-4 people; perfect for sharing with friends or savoring for more than one meal. It’s fresh, creative, and expertly crafted cuisine ready to go whenever you are, so it fits right in with The Pantry at The Wharf’s Good Food To-Go line of chef-prepared offerings. Imagine diving into a bowl of gourmet ramen that’s both fast and fabulous!

  • Masterful Collaboration: A rare blend of culinary artistry from experienced Chefs.
  • Fresh, Traditional Ingredients: Authentic Japanese flavors with a Gulf Coast twist, made fresh each day.
