It must be hell to be a chef in Brooklyn, always trying to be ahead of the curve and never getting the chance to really perfect a recipe.  Heaven help us if the Japanese realize that they should be shipping their bizarro experimental sodas and canned coffees there.

It's ostensibly a mixture of flour, sugar, and fat.

You know, cutting edge stuff.

Last summer they were selling an espresso soda in Japan, Espressoda. It was horrific.However this summer, Vanilla Coke came back.

So, you take a fresh donut and stick your dick in it. Then you sell it to hipsters in Brooklyn as a glazed delicacy.

Ramen burger for a Ramen economy...

I've had some of their bottled coffee confections. They're good but that's not surprising considering how much sugar is in them.

"The Ramen Burger
Scarcity:
There's only 100 of them to be made, at least for now. That's 100-150 less than the number of cronuts made per day."

Ignorance over the cronut is so last week.  Now people only don't know what a cronut is if they're trying to be ironic to get a laugh from people while waiting in line at the Latvian fusion food truck.

Speaking as someone who lives in Brooklyn but not in Williamsburg, I had no farking idea what a cronut was until last week, and I still haven't tried it. Don't want to. Ramen burger sounds like it could be tasty, but not tasty enough to put up with bullshiat "foodie" hype over it and stand in lines.

This is New York. I can find any great food I want without the bullshiat hype of waiting for the next big thing. While everyone's in line to try the newest fusion insanity because it's so trendy, I know a half dozen places in Chinatown that'll give you the tastiest noodles/buns/dumplings/honey-covered slow-cooked pork shoulder you've ever had.

Besides, that trendy stuff is always so expensive. I'm not going to take several hours out of my day to spend $20 on a sandwich. I don't even like waiting in line at the Shake Shack, and my office is just a few blocks from there. They're good, don't get me wrong, but they're not good enough to justify the insane lines that appear every time the weather is nice.

Older generations used to biatch about "kids these days with the stupid clothes and dumb music..."

But now, I don't care what someone half my age listens to or how they dress. But god damn it these food fads are farking retarded.

netcentric: Ramen burger for a Ramen economy...


With only a hundred made a day, I expect whoever is parting these fools from their money is charging a lot more than ramen economy prices.

After some extensive research, I've come to the conclusion it's a donut.

Good Lord. That looks incredibly unhealthy. (And yummy).

Article lost me at "shoyu sauce." Shoyu is soy sauce, you have to pick one name for it and roll with that.

I tried searching for a Google in my cronut and almost went back in time.
 
2013-08-04 09:45:59 AM
Living around hipsters is better than living around the other annoying groups of NYCers. So, I'll take that ramen burger, right after I finish my cronut.

/have tried neither

And you'll probably have to ask your foodie friends how they are, because there's a large possibility that you won't be able to procure one

There's no Ramen shortage here.

Croissant + Donut = Cronut?

I saw a picture and it looked flaky.

And many sauces are a combination of soy sauce and other ingredients.

No shiat. I know how to cook and where to get good ramen. That thing doesn't look all that hard to prepare. I suspect with a few experimental attempts I could get a working ramen bun to hang together considering how much gluten is in the stuff.

What's really interesting is that there are more and more food centric articles and references.

To me this denotes that real food is becoming more expensive and is passing out of reach of those with less money.

wildcardjack: Next big thing? Steak and eggs.


I declare the ramen burger to be over. It's had it's 15 minutes. The next greatest thing is...give me second to check my refrigerator...

Two eggs over medium seasoned with a traditional Tabasco sauce, pork sausage, and a fresh flour tortilla in place of the expected biscuit because the chef at Chez Zendo is too damned lazy to make biscuits *and* eggs.

We call it, Number 3.

It was cute when the guys that ran Subpop did that whole twee blatant money grab obnoxiousness but now that the internet has made it standard. Not so much.

Oh, just as a warning, only five of these will be made because that's how many eggs I have. Act fast foodies.

These "kids" (Hipsters do act like they're still in high school) are my age and not only are these food fads retarded, but also the sole fact that these rapidly changing trends Hipsters create and then later dismiss the trend when it becomes mainstream, is destructive.

I replaced the word "foodie" with "fatty" in that article and it was hilarious.

Bloody William: Besides, that trendy stuff is always so expensive. I'm not going to take several hours out of my day to spend $20 on a sandwich


No it isn't.  All the trendy hipster places in billyburg are generally no more expensive than eating out at some boring all Manhattan joint.

The amount of vitriol people have towards people who like to try new things with food is amazing.   Its a farking street food fest for chef's to try out things, how dare people like things you don't like!

I agree. It's a symptom of not being meaningfully engaged with life and community resulting in an ever spiraling search for novelty over substance.

My kid is a sous chef in the Mission District of SF. A few months back, he toyed with the idea of moving to Brooklyn for about 30 seconds. I'm quite glad he threw that idea away.

That crap isn't food. This is:

Yeah, good luck with that jerkoffs
