We've seen ramen "burgers" made of burger buns and ramen patties, or ramen buns filled with typical ramen toppings, but this is the first time we've seen a ramen burger with ramen buns and beef patties. Ramen blogger turned ramen chef* Keizo Shimamoto is combining two of his favorite foods with his new Ramen Burgers, debuting tomorrow, August 3, at Smorgasburg in Williamsburg (90 Kent Avenue at N. 7 Street; map). He'll be making 100 Shoyu Ramen Burgers featuring Burger Maker patties glazed with "secret" shoyu sauce, scallions, and arugula sandwiched between buns of fried Sun Noodle ramen. Eataku has more photos and details of the ramen burger-making process.
