Connecticut’s Bob Ramen Introducing Free 'Ramenritos' On Cinco De Mayo
Greater Hartford is no stranger to Asian-fusion style mashups, like phorritos, ramen burgers and Kung Pao chicken tacos. Just in time for Cinco de Mayo, Bob Ramen in Hartford and Plainville in Connecticut has answered with its own "ramenrito," which wraps (nearly) all of the ingredients from its Japanese noodle soup into a tortilla.
The handheld item contains a protein, ramen noodles, scallions, menma (fermented bamboo shoots), garlic paste, nori and sour cream-based burrito sauce, and it’s served with a side of ramen broth for dipping.
The burritos will first be available in Hartford with chicken or pork, said chef Conor Fallon, and they’ll explore vegetarian options according to demand. In Plainville, they're served with spicy beef bulgogi and pulled chicken, said co-owner Patrick Miceli.
