Lotteria Ramen Burger
Fastfood chain store Lotteria will release a new type of burger from 20th May to mid-June in Japan - the ramen burger, which is pretty much ramen sandwiched by . It is a collaboration with ramen chain store Menya Musashi (麺屋武蔵).
Menya Musashi Ramen Burger (麺屋武蔵ラーメンバーガー) will be sold for 634 Yen each, which consists of a burger bun with ramen inside as well as char siu pork. The burger is also complemented with soup to go with the ramen.
If that is not enough for you, you can add an extra 100 Yen for extra portion.
While Lotteria's ramen burger is amusing in a way, I think I personally will be more interested in Kitakata ramen burger (喜多方ラーメンバーガー) instead:
The Kitakata ramen burger is from the city of Kitakata in Fukushima prefecture, which is known for its distinctive ramen according to Wikipedia. Using ramen as the buns of the burger, with other bits and bobs sandwiched in between. It's like taking everything out of a ramen bowl sans the soup, and shape that into a burger.
