Today in lines: lots of people are lining up for ramen burgers, an insane-sounding hybrid food created by chef Keizo Shimamoto and served at Brooklyn's Smorgasburg. This past Saturday "hundreds" of people waited for one of the 100 burgers Shimamoto made, so probably some people were disappointed. What's a ramen burger, and why are so many people lining up for one? According to the Brooklyn Flea website, it's a "a 75%-25%, lean-to-fatty, juicy patty topped with shoyu (a secret sauce that is soy sauce based), scallions, and arugula, all packaged in a "ramen bun" made from Sun Noodles and a touch of sesame oil." No word on whether it's worth the line.
Other famous lines for food include those are Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York City (for cronuts) and Franklin Barbecue in Austin, Texas (for barbecue). Are ramen burgers the new cronuts the new Franklin brisket? Only time will tell. Below, experience the ramen burger line in both regular video and Instagram video.
