For some reason, this "Menya Musashi Ramen Burger" has become a hot topic in US food-related media and blog sites.

"That's Nerdalicious!", Which provides geeky gourmet information for nerds, introduces ramen burgers as follows.

"Ramen is good of any kind. [[ Omitted ]] But I couldn't even imagine putting a ramen patty in a bun. The name of this genius creation is" Menya Musashi. Ramen burger ”. Provided by the fast food chain Lotteria.

Lightly fried ramen patties are served sandwiched between buns along with pork cutlets (note: char siu to be correct) and mayonnaise. Soup is also included as a side menu. Looks good! That's only about $ 6. It's a shame that there are only chain stores in East Asia. "

Kotaku 's Ramen Burger introductory article, which provides news about games and gaymer interests, begins with the following subtitle:

"Get up! This is not a dream. It really happened. At least in Japan."

At the time of writing, Kotaku's introductory article on Ramen Garr received 47 comments from readers. At first, many of the comments praised the ramen burger and wanted to eat it.

"This is a great idea. It may be a little weird, but I've always wanted to fry ramen and eat it."

"When I ate udon, I wanted to fry it, season it with butter, garlic and teriyaki sauce, and eat it with onions and chicken. Ramen gar is close to this, but it needs to be sandwiched between buns. Was it there? "

However, the discussion in the comment section loses its direction after being written to the effect that "Ramen burgers are similar to yakisoba bread."

"Isn't ramen burger the same as yakisoba bread?"

"That's true. The noodles are fried and sandwiched between breads."

"Wait a minute, does yakisoba bread really exist? If so, I want to eat it."

After such a series of writings, a commentary on yakisoba bread follows.

"Yakisoba sandwiches have been a standard item on convenience store shelves for many years. [[ Omitted ]] 7-ELEVEN in Japan offers strange sandwiches and various types of rice balls."

In recent posts, comments praising ramen burgers have been overshadowed, and many have begun to criticize yakisoba bread.

"Because of the pork (char siu) sandwiched between them, this ramen burger is better than yakisoba bread. I don't think it's sane to sandwich carbohydrates with carbohydrates. Why is yakisoba bread so popular? ? "
