Japanese Chain Creates Ramen-Stuffed Doughnuts
First ramen burgers, and now ramen-filled doughnuts? These noodley delicacies have been released into the world from Japan, whose Burger King branches recently decided that an all-black burger was a good idea.
A Japanese restaurant chain called Osaka Ohsho is offering the ramen-noodle filled doughnut “for a very limited time only,” reports Kotaku. The “fusion” item reportedly came from an employee food contest for the restaurant chain, and was the chosen winner amongst 100 entries.[related]
According to Kotaku, the doughnut promises to be “more spicy!” and the interior is filled with “thick ramen noodles in a savory sauce.”
The ramen noodle doughnuts will be available at Osaka Ohsho until September 30 for 210 yen (approximately $2 USD). If you’re in the neighborhood and aren’t afraid of a little carbo-loading, we’d love to know what they’re like.” If all goes well, and even if it doesn't, the ramen doughnut might be headed for the States. Don't say we didn't warn you.
