Here it is, folks, the first new flavor of Ramen Burger that Keizo Shimamoto will be unveiling at Smorgasburg this Saturday… Miso Pimento!
Adding an interesting twist to its debut, the Southern-inspired burger will then be available at Dassara Ramen in Brooklyn for the rest of the week! With with a catch… they’ll be limited to fifty per day, one per person.
And for those still looking to try the original, no worries, they will still be available at Smorgasburg as well.

New York Comic Con and Brooklyn Brewery are teaming up again this year for a new incarnation of the beer concept they launched last year, Brooklyn Defender!
This year’s beer, an American Black Ale with “dark malt visage and hopping finish that protects the city from the scourge of tasteless beers” was brewed with the intention “strike fear into the heart of those who would forget the virtues of true beer.”, according to Brooklyn Brewery brew master Garrett Oliver.
The label, designed to reflect the darker aspect of the new ale, was conceived and drawn by the amazing artist Cliff Chiang!
This redesigned Defender will hit the streets of New York on September 21st at a special launch party at the Brooklyn Brewery in Williamsburg. Click here for details. Hope to see you there!

Wow! I expected Saturday’s ramen burger line to be long, but didn’t expect it to snake through almost ALL of Smorgasburg!!

As a “Manhattan snob”, I rarely travel to Brooklyn. It’s become something of a joke with my friends over the years even. I’ll get on a plane and fly halfway around the world to try a restaurant, but won’t cross a bridge to do the same. However, there are a few chefs and restaurants I will happily travel to the outer boroughs for.
Chuko is one such place.
With a very limited menu, Chefs Jamison, James and Dave focus their skills on what they do best, ramen and a handful of Asian-inspired smalls plates. And as Wolverine is known to quip, they’re some of the best there are at what they do!
Here’s a look…
A delicious kale salad for people who don’t really eat kale, like me…
Some of the best chicken wings in NYC. Period.
Pork belly buns done right…
Their outstanding kimchi ramen with ground pork!
And while an afterthought at many restaurants, the garlic chili oil Chuko offers as a condiment is exceptional!
The lighting was low so the previous pics are quite dark, I know, but I hope they’ll at least give you an idea of what to expect at this amazing little eatery. You definitely need to go and check out Chuko for yourself!
