Do you ever get simultaneously strong cravings for matzoh balls and ramen? The cure is in, and it’s a far more novelty combination than Pizza Hut and Taco Bell. That’s right, matzoh ball ramen soup is a thing where else but a Jewish & Japanese fusion restaurant in Williamsburg. The best part about this soup hybrid is that you can acquire it for free with any and every drink order at Shalom Japan during Thursday late night happy hours.
At Shalom Japan, matzoh ball ramen – which is served with a soft boiled egg, chicken, scallions and mandels (almonds) – will run you $16 if you order it for brunch, and $18 if you order it for dinner, at which time it comes with foi gras dumplings (an extra matzoh ball will run you $2, the same price as an avocado during brunch and a dollar cheaper than an extra dumpling during dinner). If you visit the restaurant from 10pm to midnight on a Thursday, though, you can score one free bowl of it for free with every alcoholic drink order. That means if you order five drinks, you’re eligible for five free bowls of matzoh ball ramen. The general manager, however, says many struggle to finish even two servings of the hearty soup.
The drinks menu at Shalom Japan is impressively long and diverse, ranging from $11 sakes to $6 rice lager beers and a wide if pricey variety of wine. In addition to the ramen deal, Shalom Japan is also offering half-off of Japanese whiskeys during happy hour.
Shalom Japan is located at 310 South Fourth St.
