Ramen Eggs Benedict Debuts in Orange County!
Ramen burgers? So 2013. This year is all about the ramen eggs benedict, the brainchild of Japanese noodle house Oudon in Fountain Valley. It sold out the first day--CRAZY!!!
You could probably envision it already: a bed of ramen buns (in place of English muffins) with traditional poached eggs and hollandaise sauce on top. But expect more Japanese elements: seaweed, lime, red ginger, and green onions are free topping options, and for additional charge, you can add chashu (pork), lamp fish caviar, fried garlic and onions, truffle salt, and a choice of spicy or teriyaki sauce. Interesting...
If you're curious and want to give it a try, be sure to show up before or right at 6 p.m. when they start serving it. Oudon only makes 30 ramen eggs benedicts a day, and each is $4.50. See you there!
Oudon, 17870 Newhope St., Fountain Valley, (714) 427-0482
