California Tortilla Introduces the Ramen Burrito, A Fresh Spin on the Japanese Noodle Trend
Fast Casual Favorite Re-Imagines Ramen for a Limited Time Only
January 20, 2015 // Franchising.com // ROCKVILLE, MD - Starting today, California Tortilla will offer a whole new way for Ramen fans to get their noodle fix - no chopsticks required. Introducing the Ramen Burrito, the latest creation from the fast casual favorite, available for a limited time only.
Rather than rice, the Ramen Burrito begins with an authentic Asian noodle base; from there, customers can choose either chicken, steak or pork, topped with a sweet red chili sauce, Sciracha pickled onions, fresh avocado, spinach, corn, scallions and cilantro. To kick up the heat a notch, pair the Ramen Burrito with the Asian-influenced Bee Sting Thai Sweet Chili Hot Sauce from the famous Wall of Flame.
"Ramen was one of the hottest food trends of 2014, and our customers are always excited to try new flavors," said Keith Goldman, California Tortilla’s Chief Operating Officer and creator of the Ramen Burrito. "So we reinvented the traditional noodle bowl without the broth, but with all the classic flavors, and wrapped it up in a flour tortilla. It’s one of my favorite new menu items, and I can’t wait for our customers to try it."
The Ramen Burrito is available from now through April at California Tortilla locations nationwide.
