Yes, you read that correctly. You will soon be able to get your ramen burger with a side of crispy, crunchy ramen fries.

Ramen burger creator Keizo Shimamoto posted this photo to Instagram teasing his new deep-fried ramen side dish, served with a spicy mayo sauce and topped with chopped  scallions.

Shimamoto has been serving the Japanese-American hybrid burger to lines of fans at Smorgasburg, the weekly food market in Brooklyn, and at various pop up markets in Los Angeles.  But when his restaurant opens in Berg’n Beer Hall opens this summer in Brooklyn, foodies will be able to satisfy their ramen craving seven days a week. (There are also plans in the works for brick and mortar locations in L.A. and Honolulu.)

Plus, you’ll be able to taste test any other new ramen dishes Shimamoto dreams up. He posted this more traditional looking ramen dish as well.

Don’t want to brave the inevitable long lines this summer? Try your hand at making the ramen burger at home.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

Excellent~ because we need *more* foods that will kill us.

Not to say it’s not creative. Maybe this gentleman could experiment with making yummy snacks out of actual nourishing ingredients? Do I sound hopelessly dull? Just tired of so many “Great Ideas!” posts that encourage people to eat non-foods that make them feel like crap in the short term and get really truly sick in the long-term.

Crabby today. Time to get away from the internet!

I ate so many ramen noodles in college to get by that I can barely look at ramen noodles anymore. Just the idea of these creations make me feel ill.
