SONO - Ramen for Lunch & Dinner plus Tuesday Wine + Sake Socials in Raleigh

Ramen is the perfect cool weather comfort food and now there's a new opportunity to get some delicious Ramen for lunch and dinner in downtown Raleigh! SONO is now offering a variety of ramen on the menu including pork, spicy miso, meat and a vegetarian option.

SONO recruited Chef Hyunwoo Kim and Certified Sake Advisor James Yang (formerly of AN in Cary), to revitalize SONO and provide superior Asian dining. Chef Kim’s new menu at SONO reflects his birthplace in Seoul, South Korea, and consequently, his extensive training in Japanese, Korean, and Thai cuisines over the past few decades.

These delicious ramen dishes expertly showcase Chef Kim’s in-depth knowledge of the ramen tradition, including his Tonkotsu, Shoyu and Spicy Miso, featuring 16-hour, house-made broths.

To complement Kim’s sophisticated Japanese cooking, James Yang – one of the few sake sommeliers in the area – has created one of the regions’ largest sake programs with 38 by the bottle, available in both large and small format. He has also expanded the wine list from 6 to 90 wines, with 15 available by the glass. From sushi to ramen, the wine and sake lists offer an in-depth way to experience SONO’s cuisine.

This was the first time I've ever had Sake! We got to taste five different Sakes with a range of flavors  and aromas and I really enjoyed the sparkling sake and the more refined Dassai 50. They paired perfectly with sushi appetizers and ramen.


To highlight the enhanced wine and sake programs, SONO welcomes guests to enjoy their new Wine & Sake Social – a delicious and casual educational culinary experience from 5pm to 6:30pm weekly on Tuesday nights. Chef Kim will serve complimentary sushi and Yang and his well-trained team will be on-hand to pour tastings of a wide variety of wines and sakes (5-10) for just $10! This is an awesome opportunity to learn from this talented team as they open bottles of specialty wines and sakes and share their knowledge. Walk-in guests are welcome, as are reservations for this unique weekly Wine & Sake Social.


It's really a great win for Raleigh to have this new Sake and Ramen opportunity in the heart of downtown Raleigh and the talent from An back as well! Be sure to stop in for lunch or dinner for ramen or grab some friends after work and try the Wine and Sake Tuesday Opportunity.
