We have for our random meal of the day an order of the Ramen Burger! I actually been eyeing a ramen burger for almost two years now. I originally saw in person a real live ramen burger at a Ramen festival. Unfortunately for me it was the first ever Ramen festival event at that time and it was pure madness. It was already past one hour in line to even buy the tickets to get into a food line. The food lines snaked all over the place and we decided to pass on the ramen festive. Well, two years later, I finally get to check off eating a ramen burger off my list. This was actually off the secret menu and only served in limited quantities each day and only served past a certain time each day. The ramen as a bun has a unique texture as it is crispy on the outside yet soft like a normal ramen on the inside. Today's random meal of the day mission has been accomplished!

We have for our random meal of the day a crazy order of the Black Humor Special Honey Toast. We start with the honey brick toast that is about 3 times the normal size. Then we add 3 scoops of ice cream. Then we top the ice cream with brownie bites and Oreos. Then even more sugar goodness is then topped on! This is a magical random meal of the day treat.

I still recall my first ever trip to the Big Apple, New York City. My coworker brought me to a typical New York Deli for a mountain of a pastrami sandwich. Food photography was future hobby. Sadly that deli no longer exists but the arch rival still remains and that is where we dined for our random meal. We have for our random meal of the day a monster of a Hot Pastrami Sandwich.
Found at Carnegie Deli in New York, New York.

We have for our random meal of the day an order of the Vintage Natural Beef Shabu-Shabu. I find it interesting for the shabu shabu experience, you are responsible for cooking your own food. This way you are ensured of the fresh quality of the food. This order of Prime Grade Rib-Eye does melt in your mouth.

We have for our random meal of the day treat an order of Jelly Munchkins Donut Holes from Dunkin' Donuts. It is funny how an east coast chain that transplants itself to the west coast creates a such a long lines. It actually took 15 minutes from the start of the end of the line to finally receiving my donuts. The jelly in the donut holes pure genius. It gives the items just the perfect random meal pop!
Found at Dunkin Donuts in Encino, California.

We have for our random meal of the day an order of the Smokin' Buffalo Chicken Pizza with Bacon! I couldn't help but to add some bacon to this pizza. The crust had a crispy crunch without being brittle or doughy. The pizza also perfectly balanced the buffalo flavor without overwhelming the taste of the pizza dough. Yum!
Found at Pieology in Thousand Oaks, California.

We have for our random meal of the day an order of Chicken Pot Fires Poutine! This is a true random meal. The Kroft takes familiar dishes and adds an innovated twist to it. A poutine is a Canadian-French specialty fries that is covered normally in gravy. The gravy for this random meal is the same gravy that is normally in a chicken pot pie. As interesting as it sounded on the menu, it was just a fantastic pop with the fries.

We have for our random meal of the day an order of Shrimp Scampi. This random meal was definitely worth the extended wait in line. It was actually our pit stop after walking the historic Freedom Trail in the opposite direction. This included the countless steps up to the top of the Bunker Hill Monument!

Our random meal of the day brings us an order of the Twin Lobster Special Ginger and Scallion style. I found eating lobster this way is much easier as you do not have to crack open the whole lobsters yourself.

We have for our random meal of the day an order of the Twin Lobster Special. It was a bit of a trek for the special but well worth it for some fresh lobsters that was friendly on the wallet.

The magic of this Boston trip came in the form of the infamous Sticky Buns by Pastry Chef Joanne Chang. I remember watching an episode of Throwdown with Bobby Flay where he challenged her magical Sticky Buns and lost. I made a mental note way back then that if I ever make it to Boston, then I will eat this magical Sticky Buns. Well I managed to eat THREE of these in span of less than a week. So many random meal choices and I kept gravitating back here. It would have been FOUR but one night tragedy struck when they had SOLD OUT for the day. It was a good thing my morning random meal of the day treat was a Sticky Bun....
