Samurai Noodle Truck Serving Tampopo Noodles on Fri, Jan 20 from 5pm - 8pm in the front of the Uptown!
Juzo Itami's rapturous "ramen western" returns to U.S. screens for the first time in decades, in a new 4K restoration. The tale of an enigmatic band of ramen ronin who guide the widow of a noodle shop owner on her quest for the perfect recipe, Tampopo serves up a savory broth of culinary adventure seasoned with offbeat comedy sketches and the erotic exploits of a gastronome gangster. Sweet, sexy, surreal, and mouthwatering, Tampopo remains one of the most delectable examples of food on film.
