BBQ Expert Aaron Franklin is heading to Dallas to make ramen

Apparently a James Beard “Best Chef” award isn’t enough for BBQ king, cookbook author and TV personality Aaron Franklin. Now he plans to make ramen.

Uptown Dallas’s Top Knot restaurant is extending their Uncommon Ramen series, adding Franklin, chef Tyson Cole (also a James Bear Best Chef winner and cookbook author) and Jackson, MS chef Jesse Houston (Saltine restaurant) to its lineup.

The chefs will collaborate with Top Knot chef Angela Hernandez on the three-night series. The ramen costs $15, and a portion of the proceeds goes benefits No Kid Hungry. Cider from Bishop Cider will be offered for pairing.

Details for Franklin’s and Houston’s ramens are sketchy, but Cole’s Spicy Yuzu Ramen is set for his Monday, January 30 feeding, which begins at 5 pm: shio chicken broth, confit pork belly, cured egg 63, fermented chili and nori. In addition, two types of Japadogs will be available – Kimchi Cheese Dog (bacon stewed kimchi, nacho cheese, crispy fried onions) and Banh Mi Dog (chicken liver pate, cilantro, cucumber, pickled carrot, TK-racha, mayo)

Franklin’s meal is slated for Monday, February 27, 5 p.m.  Houston goes live Monday, March 27, 5 p.m.
