Um, first ramen burger? Please. I ate a ramen burger well over 20 years ago. It was a package of shrimp ramen, opened, between two slices of Wonder Bread with the flavor powder sprinkled on one side and a one packet each of ketchup and mustard that I'd stolen from McDonald's on the other. I don't remember what it tasted like for a variety of reasons, but I hate the whole thing.

Normally PJ your kinda witty and funny, and a lot of people like you, but reading your Boobies on the subject just didn't make me giggle like I normally do.  Maybe its getting late and my funny bone is tired.

Oh well.

Noodles on bread can't be a good thing.

Yup i'm tired.... damn filter got me again.  Damn you filter..... DAAAAAAAMMMMMM YOU!

Uncooked chicken ramen is the best.. I survived on that shiat in Vermont for months..

/pound package to crush ramen
/open one side and sprinkle chicken seasoning directly into package
/hold open side closed, shake for 10 seconds
/Delicious

Not the first, subby. These have been around for a bit. I'm not entirely sure where they originated, but it's been making the rounds over the summer.

I still maintain that ramen burgers are an internet prank rather than a legitimate fad.
 
2013-09-08 01:01:31 AM
actual/high quality ramen is delicious.
 
2013-09-08 01:01:59 AM
I'm intrigued by the logistics it must take to form cooked ramen into a bun-shaped object that won't fall apart when wrapped around a hot burger with all it's juices, won't fall apart on the first bite, and won't apart on any bite thereafter. There must be a way to wrap a burger in an envelope of edible rice paper too.

I'm not surprised, however, that the one guy pointed out that they're bland without the special sauce.

They fry it. Dries the noodles out enough to form a crusty bun-like thing. Same as frying chicken gives it a nice crust.

Most of the links are either payed or sponsored.  Fewer and fewer links get through each day, because they have to either make sure buzzfeed isn't planning on stealing the content, hasn't ALREADY stolen the content, or that the site isn't planning on paying for links.  If you can't tell, buzzfeed kills a lot of things.

Anyway, just Greasemonkey (UserScript) the shiatty shiat out; I haven't seen a Buzzfeed link (or ad, or Gawker link) in ages*.

If you use Adblock Plus, you never see the blatantly sponsored ones. And the ones that come from the Gawker network or Daily Mail are pretty obvious and easy to skip over.

Oh yes, and while on the subject, I once submitted a link, and it was greenlit and later reverted to red so that the Gizmodo version could be greenlit - even though its source was the one I submitted. In fact, I had found it on Giz, and wanted to give the source the proper credit with my submittal.

This is jail/prison food. They make burritos with ramen too. And grilled cheese with a clothing iron. And knives out of toothbrushes. What's next? Pruno bars?

sharphead:

There's no bread, the ramen takes the place of the hamburger buns.  My uncle has been making "saimin burgers" for years, making me think this probably originated as street food in the Philippines. He lived there for several years and has all sorts of bizarre recipes. His weirdest, yet completely awesome dish is "Dog on a log," which, at least as he makes it here, consists of chicken or pork marinated in a peanut butter and cola based sauce, and then skewered, and grilled.

I do use ABP, so I normally don't see them. But I know they're there, and I stumble onto them from time to time when using other browsers / machines.

My problem is not feeding the squirrel; my problem is feeding the squirrel AND blocking comments, which are the heart of Fark.

I remember the SbB, Fark TV, etc. links, etc. - they were awful, but at least you could comment on those. So I would click on them.
 
2013-09-08 02:04:24 AM
did they make the burgers with hamburger from those Japanese cows that are hand massaged and pampered their whole lives?

this event must have had foodies rubbing one off in public

Yeah, that "ad injected into the newsfeed headlines" crap has me looking for an alternative to Fark now.  I've been here for over 10 years (with a few names) and this is just becoming ridiculous.  I used to come here for all my relevant news but now it seems MSNBC has more actual content than this place and the posters no longer seek information but "entertainment" through fights, arguments, etc.
 
2013-09-08 02:27:23 AM
So is it "fewer" or "less" than 2000 people lined up?

FTA:

Friends Joe Yang, Bryan Jue and Jae Hahn from the South Bay area showed up to wait in line at 6:20 a.m. with chairs and a paper fan. "We thought it was intriguing enough to come and wait," Jue said.

Gulp.  I hope they were already in town to visit friends or something and didn't make this trip expressly for the purpose of eating a ramen burger.  South Bay = San Jose, and since Torrance is in Los Angeles, that's a five-hour drive.  There was a seafood restaurant about 25 miles from us, and every six months or so we would go there because the beer battered cod was absolutely amazing.  I've had some great burgers in my life; there's not a single one I would have gone more than twenty miles for.  And before you tell me I sound old or fat or unfun, I'd like to point out that San Jose to L.A. is a 340 mile trip.  What would you drive 340 miles for?

That look exactly how ramen looks like when I'm drunk as hell and make it in the half-inch shallow bowls that I usually serve curry in.

strangely unappealing. Possibly better suited for more discriminating tastes.
 
2013-09-08 06:48:42 AM
You can make them yourself.   I found the how to on youtube and it is pretty easy to make.

I would drive 340 miles, and I would drive 340 miles more, just to be the man who drove 680 miles and die of cardiac arrest at my front door.

I saw an internet video showing how to make one. They first add raw egg to the noodles to bind it,then they pressed it in a round mould. Then they cooked it.

I know it may sound crazy with a super descriptive name like "South Bay", but there is also a region in LA called South Bay which isn't that far from Torrance.

Well....that was a thing.

That reads like a story of a CEO giving their son a high ranking high impacting position over more desired experienced workers and watching everything go to hell after the son royally screws up. Or the big star who pushes their kid into the spotlight and then is shocked SHOCKED when the world doesn't treat the kid as the second coming and gets outraged, ruining their image. A kind of story seen and mocked time and time again here on Fark. Does he even read his own site?

Also, it could turn into a cheap shield to deflect any valid criticisms. 'Oh, you don't like X being decided on instead of Y? Sounds like you are attacking MY SON. Permabanned!'
