A tradition Japanase hambāgā.

If you've never fancied yourself a noodle slurper, Tanoshii Ramen + Bar still wants you to stop by for a visit. This week Chef Lan Chi Le added a few Japanese burgers to the menu at her noodle house: a traditional hambāgā, a chicken burger and a veggie burger.

In Japan, you can find the hambāgā on the menu at a McDonald's (nicknamed Makku in Tokyo). Of course, the obvious fact of the day is that the Japanese alphabet is different than ours. So hambāgā is a rough, mostly phonetic translation.

"Japan borrowed the English hamburger," Chi says. "One of our chefs, born and trained in Japan, is offering Dallas his childhood authentic Japanese hambāgā."

The not-at-all-secret ingredient in Tanoshii's traditional Japanese hambāgā is the spicy miso chili that tops a ground beef patty. Then there is the option to add tomato, onions and lettuce, like any other burger you've ever eaten.

Tell me that's not a good-looking veggie burger

In an over-burgered city, the most exciting addition to the menu might be the vegetarian korokke burger. It's a mixed vegetable croquette coated with panko, fried to a golden crisp and topped with fresh wafu-slaw and homemade sweet-and-spicy tonkatsu sauce. There's also a new chicken teriyaki sandwich, which is pretty self-explanatory.

Of course, this news came after I finished eating my leftover Brussels sprouts for lunch.

Hmm based on their reviews maybe they should work on perfecting their ramen instead of throwing gimmicky items on the menu.


I certainly wouldn't go to Off-Site Kitchen for ramen.
