San Francisco now has a ramen vending machine called, 'Yo-Kai Express'. You can find three different locations around SF but the most known location is at the SF Metreon Shopping Center that is downtown. This machine is open 24/7 and only takes 45 seconds to make. Andy Lin, founder of Yo-Kai Express, partnered with a chef from a Michelin rated restaurant to create the ramen recipes. The noodles were created by a local Japanese ramen vendor and the ramen bowls come with several slices of chasu (pork belly meat).
Would you try ramen out of a vending machine? I think it's a great idea. Honestly SF is one of the only big cities that isn't a 24/7 city so it's hard to find a good meal at 3a. I will definitely try this out!
