Winter Cray-vin’

Arashi means "storm" in Japanese and was named after Wellington’s well-known climate; windy, wet, and cold. Arashi’s head chef has studied in Japan under Japanese ramen masters on how to make traditional and authentic ramen.
The inspiration behind this dish was the ultimate comfort food for a stormy Wellington winter’s night. The answer: a steaming hot bowl of ramen with a Kiwi twist, New Zealand crayfish, further enriching the pork bone broth with the rich umami of crayfish shell to warm the soul.
