It may be a couple years late, but ramen burgers have finally gone national.

The crazy hybrid concoction – which uses pan-fried patties of ramen noodles in lieu of traditional buns – was created by chef Keizo Shimamoto and originally debuted in N.Y.C.’s Smorgasburg in 2013, instantly becoming one of the trendiest foods in the country.

In a rather bold move, burger chain Red Robin has taken his innovative concept and adapted it to their restaurants. Their version, called the Red Ramen Burger, includes chili-infused cabbage, carrots, onions, basil, and teriyaki aioli.

“We closely follow emerging trends, and when the ramen burger first debuted, our culinary team worked to develop Red Robin’s take on the foodie favorite, enabling us to be the first to offer it nationally,” the restaurant’s CMO Jonathan Muhtar said in a statement.

The item will be available starting April 4th and will only stick around for a couple months, so get one while you can. (Or, alternatively, you could just make your own at home).
