The Katsu Burger Cup Noodle is created by a Seattle restaurant Katsu Burger and are available for a limited time. Based on their popular Mt.Fuji Burger, this cup features two fried noodle patties made with the Cup Noodles, cheddar cheese, chicken katsu, shredded cabbage, bacon, fried egg, and lots of cheese. It's also topped off with spicy mayo, pickle, and eggplant.

The variations were created in collaboration with Nissin Cup Noodles and there are plenty of additional restaurants who dove to the challenge of re-inventing the classic cup noodle with their own creative twist. Personally, I'm not too big a fan of them, but they look interesting enough so I'll definitely have to try them the next chance I get to really experience this foodie phenomenon.
