Nashville in 10 Plates
Sarah Gavigan has a day job in the music business but also a great love for Japanese izakaya food, especially ramen. She started doing pop-up ramen dinners called Otaku South, including one at The Catbird Seat, and they always sell out. She will be opening a real restaurant soon. I like her pork ramen. A lot. She makes a super-porky, super-fatty tonkotsu broth, then she adds shoulder meat, a poached egg and cooked greens. otakusouth.com.
