Shimamoto already runs a Ramen Shack at the food court and has added a second booth dedicated to the burger. For the uninitiated the ramen burger pairs a fresh USDA Prime ground beef chuck patty from burger masters Schweid & Sons with a bun fashioned from ramen noodles topped with scallions and a shoyu glaze. Smorgasburg Queens is open Saturdays from 11 a.m to 6 p.m..
