If you follow the small, but growing, ramen options in Charleston, you’ve likely heard of 2Nixons. A ramen pop-up operated by Jeffrey Stoneberger, the roving stand has been dishing up spicy miso with pork belly, pickled mushrooms, eggs, bamboo shoots, and more at various locations over the past month, all in an effort to drum up support for Stoneberger’s Go Fund Me restaurant campaign.
Now the chef is giving back. This Saturday his pop-up will be entirely free to Charleston’s homeless.
“I travel onto 26 everyday and pass tent city on my way home,” says Stoneberger. “I hate seeing so many people struggle. It makes me ill.”
Thanks to some generous donations from Snyder rentals, Bulls Bay Saltworks, Grassroots Farm, Sun Noodle Co., and GrowFood Carolina, he’ll feed the hungry instead.
“Anyone who is needy can show up and receive a bowl of our miso/turkey ramen,” he says.
Stoneberger and his crew will be serving ramen from on Sat. Nov. 28 from 2-4:30 p.m. in the field where the white tent is always set up at the corner of Lee and Meeting streets.
