Ramen Burger, the Elusive Burger Sensation, to be Available for the Masses at Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Brews

Gourmet Burger Authority is Offering the Red Ramen Burger to the First 22 College Students for 22 cents –Average Cost of Packet of Ramen, a Quintessential College Staple

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., March 29, 2016 – The ramen burger – the latest food frenzy to sweep New York and Los Angeles – is going national for the first time! Starting April 4, guests can line up at Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Brews (Red Robin) restaurants around the country to get a taste of the highly sought after culinary craze. To celebrate the limited time offer, Red Robin has dubbed April 19 Red Ramen Day, and the first 22 college students in the door with an appetite and valid student ID can get the Red Ramen Burger and Bottomless Steak Fries for only 22 cents – the average cost of a packet of ramen, a quintessential college staple.

“We closely follow emerging trends, and when the ramen burger first debuted, our culinary team worked to develop Red Robin’s take on the foodie favorite, enabling us to be the first to offer it nationally,” said Jonathan Muhtar, Red Robin’s senior vice president and chief marketing officer. “At Red Robin, we strive to constantly provide our guests with unique experiences and menu items that they can’t get anywhere else in the casual dining industry.”

The Red Ramen Burger is the latest deliciously daring innovation from Red Robin, which has previously introduced ghost pepper to its menu before it became trendy and mainstreamed the beer milkshake. Available through June 5, the Red Ramen Burger, served on a crispy seasoned ramen bun, is topped with teriyaki and Chiu Chow aioli, fried jalapeno coins, a medley of chili-infused shredded cabbage, carrot and onion and garnished with fresh basil. To further celebrate Red Ramen Day on April 19, Red Robin is giving all guests a $2.22 discount off the new burger in participating restaurants.
