Birria is a type of stew made of braised meat and spices. While it’s most typically enjoyed in tacos, its liquid-like consistency could make it a perfect fit for a unique ramen dish. Del Taco’s Shredded Beef Birria Ramen seems poised to offer the best of both worlds when combining the two; ramen offers a similarly comforting eating experience to what birria lovers enjoy.
Furthermore, the release of this item will make QSR history. Tim Hackbardt added, “With this introduction, we will not only be the first major quick-service restaurant chain to offer ramen, overnight we will become the largest restaurant chain in the country to serve ramen.”
The ramen, which will cost $5.79, includes beef broth consomé and shredded beef birria with ramen noodles, cilantro, diced onions, and lime. While time will tell whether ramen stays on Del Taco’s menu, it’s possible this history-making dish could add a new offering to the list of beloved food fusion mash-ups.
