When it reached theatres, the Japanese film Tampopo (1985) was marketed as the world’s first “ramen western”. It’s the story of two truck drivers, Goro + Gun, who use their culinary expertise to change the fate of a struggling noodle shop. The passion those two characters showed for the art of noodle-making lives on at Calgary’s spacious 150-seat noodle bar Goro + Gun — a collaboration between managing partner Ken Mcdonald and executive chef Tomo Mitsuno. Located on Stephen Avenue, upstairs on the +15 level, the restaurant melds modern art graphics with the distinctive hardwood and right angles of Japanese decor.Planning a large shindig or company event?
