I ate this strange (?) "Ramen burger" right away! We will take you to the world of carbohydrates.
■ Enter the "Ramen Burger" world!
Arrived at the shop at 10:30 when the morning menu ends. The outside curtain and the menu inside the store are full of "ramen burgers".
■ I'm here, "Ramen Burger"!
Now, the ramen burger is finally here.
On the tray are hamburger wraps, soup and chopsticks. The hamburger has an unexpectedly round shape ...
Open the package right away! What came out was a hamburger with noodles protruding from the buns. The contrast between brown and yellow is wonderful. However, it is a little disappointing that the "crispy noodles" cannot be seen as much as the prior information.
From under the buns, a large char siu appeared. It seems to reproduce the taste of "Menya Musashi". The sauce is plentiful, and like Musashi, the thick char siu looks delicious. And because the noodles are sticking out, you can't see the buns below. It looks like a hamburger.
■ Try to eat immediately
I'll get it right away! The noodles will fall, so I'll do my best to bring a hamburger.
Anyway, I put up with wanting to bite into the char siu, so I first tried to bite the noodles. Pepper is working well, and this is enough.
Now that we've arrived at the buns, we'll have buns, mayonnaise, char siu, and noodles together! This is ... yakisoba bread! The sweet sauce of char siu is entwined with the noodles, and the saltiness of the noodles and mayonnaise are added to make it exquisite. It's a little different from the sauce, but the taste and texture are like yakisoba bread. I would like to tell everyone who is excited overseas.
However, it is still "ramen". The large char siu that has been carefully simmered to reproduce the taste of "Menya Musashi Shinjuku Main Store" creates the flavor of ramen.
■ Finally, "ramen" at the hamburger shop
After enjoying the hamburger, the garnished "special soup" will finally come into play. You can enjoy it as a ramen by adding a "replacement ball" that is sold for 100 yen.
The author, who had never asked for a replacement ball at a hamburger shop, was confused because he didn't know when to ask for it, but I felt that it was a "replacement ball" because he was "refilling", so after eating the hamburger, the counter What. It takes a little courage to order.
■ A replacement ball has really come out!
The spare ball came out in the cup! Put this replacement ball in a cup of soup and top it with the remaining char siu. Does it look like ramen? You'll want to put white onions and taste balls on it.
The soup has a strong bonito flavor and is light. The noodles have a fairly strong undertone, but when combined with the light soup, it has a rich taste. The char siu is also well seasoned, so you will feel like you are eating ramen. Rather, the toppings are not enough.
The sound of (the author's) noodle squeezing that echoes in the hamburger shop. It was a valuable experience.
If you don't have the confidence to eat a replacement ball, we recommend you to try it as a "soup". It has a bonito flavor and is lightly finished, so you can fully enjoy it as a "garnish".
■ A wonderful world of carbohydrates
Looking back, there are surprisingly many foods that combine carbohydrates and carbohydrates. However, this "Menya Musashi Ramen Burger" has a three-tiered structure of buns (carbohydrate) + ramen (carbohydrate) + spare balls (carbohydrate). Moreover, you can enjoy both hamburgers and ramen.
It will be on sale from today at 137 stores in Kanto and from May 20th at other stores. The single item price is 634 (Musashi) yen. It's only available until mid-June, so we recommend that you try it early.
