We 100 percent loved Arnold’s ramen sliders from this week’s food truck challenge. We’ve been seeing those around New York City for a bit lately, thanks to Keizo Shimamoto — a second-generation Japanese-American blogger turned ramen chef — who premiered his ramen burger at the outdoor Brooklyn-based food market  Smorgasburg. It’s been almost two years since the first ramen burger was served, and the love affair is still not over — but you no longer have to go to Brooklyn to get one.

Make them at home; just follow our pictogram recipe below. We used two regular muffin trays as molds, so you don’t have to buy any special equipment. Sandwich your favorite slider combo between two ramen "bun" halves. We made a Vietnamese-inspired slider with a ground pork patty, vegetables and nuoc cham — a common fish-sauce-and-lime-juice sauce.
