Time flies when you're slurping up Japanese noodle soups and having fun, as Paddington's Hai Hai clearly knows. It has been two years since they've opened their doors, and they're throwing a party to celebrate. Unlike any old birthday shindig, however, this one comes with free ramen.
When the merriments kicks off on March 12, you'll want to arrive as close to 5pm as you can — the free brothy bowls will only be available to the first 200 customers. And, it's a dine-in only affair, so prepare for a line to get into the eatery's cute, cosy Latrobe Terrace digs.
Sticking around past 6pm is recommended as well, as that's when some of Brissie's most dedicated ramen fiends will take part in Hai Hai's slurping competition. We're not quite sure how you win such a comp — fastest individual slurp? Loudest? Quickest person to slurp up the whole bowl? All of the above? — but it sounds tasty and entertaining either way.
