From the country that gave the world ramen burgers, we have this: "ramen donuts" (ラーメンドーナツ). They're ramen noodles but inside donuts. Clever, no?

Sankei News and Macaroni report that restaurant chain Osaka Ohsho is rolling out the special dish for a very limited time only.

The ramen donut even came in first place among one hundred entries at an employee food contest for the restaurant chain.

The ramen donut is made with fried bread, so don't think of this like a sweet, glazed donut. It's more spicy! Inside the donut, of course, there are thick ramen noodles in a savory sauce. Looks interesting! Looks good! I'm keen. LET'S DO THIS.

The ramen donuts will be available at Osaka Ohsho until September 30 for 210 yen (around US$2) a pop.

I ate Ramen Burger few days ago in NYC.. so that isn't big of a deal.. How is it that different than Yakisoba bread that Japanese always eat? It's like just trapping Ramen instead of Yakisoba and you are actually trapping in the ball of donut bread instead of putting soba between bread like sandwich. Fact is... you are eating bread with noodles....
