The ramen burger shouldn’t have worked. Same goes for ramen poutine or bacon ramen sushi rolls, and yet somehow the latter two still snaked their way into internet infamy just within the last week alone. And now we find that a ramen lobster roll recipe has existed since September of last year? It’s official, folks. There is truly no escaping the rame-fications of ramen-mania. (Not sorry.)
To construct the buttery mash-up, Taiwanese-American blogger Joy of The Cooking of Joy cooked some instant noodles with egg, let them chill in the fridge, then pan fried and molded them into a taco shape. The lobster salad consisted of a pound and half of chopped lobster meat, toasted sesame oil, and kewpie (Japanese mayonnaise).
The result? A welcome submission to the ongoing Frankenramen craze. Although, would it be too much to ask for something sweet for a change? Ramen donuts, someone make it happen.
