MC and I headed back to the Noodle Markets this week to check out another popular item on the menu, the Ramen Burger.
We got there around 5.45pm, and after grabbing a couple of delicious satay chicken skewers to snack on, we headed over to the Ramen Burger stall.
Satay Chicken Skewers, $3.00
As you can see from the photo, the queue was quite long as it was a popular choice.
Now there has been a bit of a buzz about the Ramen Burger recently since it was launched by David Yip from On Ramen in Haymarket.
The dish has been popular in Japan, since invented by a 35 year old New Yorker obsessed with Ramen.
Making the patty involves cooking noodle patties until al dente, then washing them under cold water, infusing them with a ramen sauce, freezing it in a container and then frying them hot until crisp to create a “bun”.
The vegetables on the burger include onion, lettuce, tomato and corn, and the burger can be made with either tofu or beef.
It comes with a side salad which includes, interestingly, watermelon.
Beef Ramen Burger, $12.50
Overall, the burger is delicious. I loved the mayo tasting light sauce, with the fresh and delicious watermelon. The patty is crisp and firm, without being crunchy and breakable, and the beef is of good quality, delicious and juicy.
I would highly recommend trying this innovative take on Ramen and definitely suggest getting it while it’s hot at the night noodle markets, open until the end of this coming week!
