In a city full of culinary crossovers, it was only a matter of time before someone put together an Indonesian-inspired ramen burrito in L.A..Not surprisingly, the chef behind this magical-sounding creation, known as an "Indomie Burrito," is Chef Erwin Tjahyadi of Komodo, the same mash-up mad scientist who brought us the Phorrito. This time around, Tjahyadi looks to his Indonesian roots for his latest burrito hybrid, drawing upon the flavors of Indomie Mi Goreng, a Southeast Asian brand of instant ramen noodles. Wrapped in a flour tortilla, the Indiome Burrito features a mix of steak, eggs, scallions and garlic, combined with the thin, curly and chewy noodles flavored with secret spices. And while we haven't had the chance to try it yet, it sounds like the stuff of a late-night munchies fantasy.

The Indiome Burrito is available at both the Venice and Pico locations of Komodo, but this creation won't be around for long. You can check it out starting today, Nov. 2 through Sunday, Nov. 15 during normal business hours (11 a.m. to 9 p.m.).

Komodo is located at 8809 West Pico Blvd., Pico-Robertson, (310) 246-5153; and 235 Main St., Venice, (310) 255-6742.
