Venue Info

You’ve been living under an overturned ramen bowl if you haven’t heard of Keizo Shimamoto's ramen burger (an umami-rich beef patty between buns made of ramen noodles), which he first debuted at Smorgasburg after learning the tricks of the ramen trade as Ivan Orkin's apprentice. The chef gives a permanent home to his creations at this LIC restaurant, where more traditional bowls of tonkotsu broth are available alongside the aforementioned burger and the signature Dirty Shoyu ramen, a soy-sauce-flavored broth with a paste made out of fried sardine heads.
