Ramen Burger in Kyiv, Ukraine

I visited Ramen Burger Restaurant in Kyiv, Ukraine in January 2017

It is not always that mixing two good things leads to something better. Especialy when it comes to food. In Sweden having banana on pizza seems to be a big thing. It has never been to my liking. When visiting Kyiv I found another peculiar mix. The Ramen Burger. A burger where the bread is replaced by Ramen. The burger is prepared like any other burger, Except you replace the bread with ramen. The ramen needed to be fried a bit before serving to obtain a bread-like consistency. I was sceptical, but had to try it. Ordered my meal with low expectations, so low it would take a lot for me to be disappointed.

‘Yes, I think we understand enough of it.’

Winter in Sapporo can be quite cold, even for a Norwegian. There are freezing temperatures, icy winds, snow, ice. It is no wonder that the people here have found food that helps them keep warm during winter.
