Often dressed in cheese, it never goes out of style

The ramen burger is the brainchild of Keizo Shimamoto, a Japanese American and founder of the blog, GoRamen. "From a very young age, at a time when my brain was still learning how to store memories, I've always loved ramen. As a second generation Japanese-American who grew up frequenting Japan with family, I soon developed a love that would one day encapsulate my wildest dreams," Shimamoto writes in his blog.
