Londoners!! March on down to your City Council with pitch forks, torches, forks, knives, and cloth napkins tucked into your shirt like a bib. This is going to get messy!

@tsarstepan,
Swine down on Hudson is a decent place, it's comfortable and the food is enjoyable. The burger was of course a draw...burgers usually are for me, however it wasn't quite as high in delighting my tasters as they'd made me believe it would be. At nearly twenty bucks it wasn't worth it, bone marrow and fancy cheese or not. (I suspect it'd have been better with raw onions).

Not to worry though, they gave me a delicious pork belly...with pickled cabbage! and the staff doesn't rush the customer (at least the times I've visited they haven't).

One good thing about it is that it took over Rubyfruit which used to annoy the heck out of me when I'd pass by on the way to the post office.

Will Swine last? Hard to say. I was sure Saz would never close (the owners retired, it wasn't the rent amount); but it did and became Bayard something or other. Tough block and big competition at the far corner with Cowgirl (Hall of Fame) at 10th Street.

@tsarstepan,
What in hell is a Webby? If it means positive commentary on the internet, you should accept much of the blame. If it means good food, they should call it a foodie.

@roger,
Webbies are the Oscars of the internet. They're given to the best online sites on the internet. One set is voted on by the public and the other is voted on by the Webby committee.

@roger,
I dunno.

Burgers are being a bit 2008, but ...

cheeseburgers are a good thing
ramen is a good thing (if you're having university flashbacks)
fried food is popular

@ehBeth,
I'd try it but I'm not going to wait in a very long line in order to possibly be one of the 100 lucky people to try this limited test run burger.

@ehBeth,
I'm wondering how much food engineering it takes to keep the ramen noodles solid enough to hold the burger bun shape while eating it or is it only eatable via fork and knife?

I'll wait and see if the cook/restaurant owner will make it a regular on the menu.

@tsarstepan,
Noodles are pretty easy to form into interesting shapes. Think of those awesome noodle bowls they serve food in. Those just take two big wire mesh scoopers to shape.

Quote:
The soft debut is part of Shimamoto's efforts to start a Ramen Burger restaurant, and the chef said the burgers would only be available to the first 100 customers. Scott Lynch got to Smorgasburg at 10:30 a.m., a half hour before the Sun Noodle booth opens. Lynch reports:


There were about 40 people already there, the first guy on line having arrived at 9:00 a.m. It was raining, and would continue to do so, off and on, for the next 95 minutes before I actually had my Ramen Burger in hand. Line slowness was due almost entirely to the limited cooking space at the booth; they can fry only four ramen "buns", or two burgers worth, at a time. None of the above—the rain, the creeping pace—seem to discourage anyone, and when I left there were people who had been on line for two hours, and were still nowhere close to the front. No way they limited it to only the first 100 customers.


As for the Ramen Burger itself, it tastes (and mouth-feels) exactly as you would expect: plain ramen, slightly crunchy but mostly soft and noodle-y, sealed together for hand-holding, but then it all comes apart pleasantly in your mouth, a nifty trick; good burger, cooked medium rare, juicy and rich; "secret sauce" which brings both sweetness and salt to the party.
Lynch adds that it "could definitely use some jacking up, some fire and heat, like if they used red chili ramen or something, but for a soft opening, first time out, with the limitations they have in their 'kitchen', I'd say Keizo and crew totally pulled it off."
