JINYA Ramen Bar is inviting its local communities to commemorate the acclaimed Japanese ramen restaurant’s 12-year anniversary with two weeks of contests and special deals.

CEO and Founder Tomo Takahashi introduced traditional Japanese rich, thick broth and noodles that simmers for 20 hours in perfect balance with delicious noodles at the first JINYA Ramen Bar in Studio City in 2010, forever changing the game of ramen across North America.

To celebrate the past 12 successful years, JINYA will host a photo challenge from July 15-31. When guests dine at their local JINYA, they can take a picture with their server and then post it to Instagram with the hashtag #jinyasmiles for a chance to win a variety of enticing prizes. JINYA will determine 13 winners with the most creative and eye-capturing snapshots and award:

·Grand Prize – Flight to Tokyo with five nights of lodging! One grand prize for a customer (+1 guest). 

·Second Prize – Flight to Honolulu, Hawaii with five nights lodging for sets of winners total. Two customers (+1 guest each).

·Third Prize – 10 $100 JINYA gift cards.

To keep the celebration going, any guests who order either the Tonkotsu Original 2010 or Spicy Creamy Vegan Ramen will receive a FREE signature three-piece Crispy Chicken or Impossible Tacos.

“I can’t believe it has already been 12 years since opening JINYA Ramen Bar,” Takahashi says. “We are so happy to have so many loyal guests and employees to keep our love for ramen alive on this side of the Pacific. We hope to keep sharing what true ramen culture is like through bold Japanese flavors with many more communities in the near future. I’m also excited to launch our new loyalty program, JINYA Rewards, this summer.”

At JINYA, experience ramen like it’s meant to be – with thick, rich broth in perfect balance with flavorful noodles. Discover a wide array of authentic toppings, from tender pork chashu to a perfectly cooked and seasoned poached egg to fresh garlic. Then, elevate the experience further by pairing it with tapas or a craft beer. JINYA is ramen culture, where the relationship between broth and noodles is serious but delicious business.
