Shin-Sen-Gumi 2GO Offers Japanese Dishes via Drive-Thru

The idea of a drive-thru typically brings to mind traditional American quick-service fare, like burgers and fries, but Japanese restaurant Shin-Sen-Gumi 2GO is bringing the speed and convenience of the drive-thru model to a different category of cuisine. The LA- and Tokyo-based restaurant chain's newest concept location offers the entire menu for order via drive-thru, so car-bound consumers at the South Bay restaurant can get dishes like ramen, yakitori, and more.

To be sure, Shin-Sen-Gumi 2GO isn't abandoning standard drive-thru meals entirely. Consumers can order a burger at the drive-thru, though it'll be a Japanese take. Shin-Sen-Gumi's burger is made out of fried Spam rather than beef, and the bun is made from griddled rice instead of sesame seed bread.
