Ramen Reimagined

The Original Ramen Burger™ by Keizo Shimamoto

As a Japanese kid growing up in California, Keizo Shimamoto developed a love for both parts of his culture: L.A. and Tokyo, ramen and burgers.

While studying ramen in Japan, he encountered pork sandwiches with ramen buns, and a light bulb went off. Inspired by the burgers back home, he merged the best of both and reinvented two iconic dishes.

The Original Ramen Burger™ was born, as was an unpredictable, unprecedented, unrestrained demand from the public.

The result is iconoclastic and exciting, and he’s just getting started.
