When we were at San Diego Comic Con this past summer, one of the most talked-about movies was Blade Runner 2049. After decades of waiting, we finally are getting a sequel to one of the most iconic science fiction movies of all time, Blade Runner. Of course, that meant a recipe and with a little inspiration from the walkthrough at SDCC, we came up with our version of Spirited Noodles!
Blade Runner 2049 is set thirty years after the events of the first film. A new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
The inspiration for our recipe came from a dish we were served at San Diego Comic Con within the Blade Runner 2049 Experience. Without knowing the exact ratios or ingredients used, we went off of the description and modified it to our taste. Additionally, with Johnnie Walker being a sponsor at the event and within the movie, we had to use it in our sauce!
Here is where things get a little different! Normally we giveaway screening tickets for movies, however, this time we are giving away 10 pairs of Fandango Passes which means you can see BLADE RUNNER 2049, anywhere in the U.S., at any time, until Thursday, November 2nd, with one guest, up to $12 a person! The winner will be chosen on Tuesday, October 3rd, so you’ll need to enter quickly! Good luck!
Inspired by a dish they tried at SDCC, The Geeks have created their own version of the Spirited Noodles served in the Blade Runner 2049 Experience.
