Sate those late-night munchies with a ramen buffet featuring perfectly chewy noodles, succulent protein options and a kaleidoscope of colorful veggie add-ins. Tailored to each guest’s taste, every dish of ramen is finished with a serving of savory, slowly simmered broth—slurp it all down before returning to the dance floor.
