Sometimes we crave things out of pure curiosity. I’ve been fighting this battle with the Ramen Burger for a couple of months since I first saw it come onto the scene. I thought it looked weird. I always thought it would feel weird replacing a bun with noodles in my hand and I didn’t like the idea of it. In fact, I was willing to give it a “hard pass.” But now, I’m a little bit more open to the idea. Why? Because I grew up eating only noodles basically. It’s a carb that I never get tired of. When you think about it, it’s almost like you’re eating a bowl of noodle soup without the soup.
As I type this post, the Ramen Burger is currently taking over New York City by storm.
The Ramen Burger is an all-beef patty, sandwiched between two ramen noodle “buns.” It’s garnished with a secret Shoyu sauce, arugula and green onions. The flavor is a salty-sweet combination, but the texture of the buns is what makes this burger so enticing.
