More than 1,000 people lined up in Los Angeles over the weekend hoping to be among the first to sample the Ramen Burger. The LA Times reports that Keizo Shimamoto debuted the burger at the Smorgasburg Food Festival in Brooklyn earlier, drawing attention to his interesting combo burger.
Word spread fast that he had set up a test kitchen at the Mitsuwa Marketplace, and more people showed up than Shimamoto and his team were prepared for.
The Ramen Burger is a burger patty with lettuce, green onions, and Keizo’s secret sauce between two buns made of cooked and browned Ramen noodles.
