This incredible story of Ramen begins with a tweet – and this photo:
Fellow wordpress blogger Melissa tweeted me this picture – “55 uses for Ramen” – so why did she do this? Well, here is the story: first, a few words about Melissa: she has a great blog you should check out:
She also creates cool jewelry and art as well – you can read all of her posts on her blog or follow her here on twitter:
Oh, one other thing:
And she hates Ramen.
I didn’t know this until a few months ago, when I blogged about a Ramen burger:
Melissa was quick to point out how disgusting this looked. Then she shared this picture on twitter to emphasize how wrong Ramen is:
I respectfully disagreed and shared a story of much higher quality food to show I had taste and refinement. As a food fan, I am always on the lookout for the perfect meal…like the poached lobster mitts at The French Laundry…
When food is conceived, prepared and served perfectly, the world is a better place…
The Flip Side To Great Food…
That said, Melissa’s hated of Ramen did what she should have assumed it would – it sent me off on a search for the world’s worst Ramen – and I found it!
Yes, I found a restaurant that promises:
“Ramen That’s Too Disgusting To Eat!”
As the great website RocketNews24 reports, there is a Ramen restaurant that serves a Ramen dish described like this:
“So disgusting it’s completely inedible. Even the staff serving it is said to gag merely at its malevolently malodorous stench – all for the low, low price of 1,800 yen!”
Welcome To Hiroshima!
Yes, Japan has done it again, and this time they are doing it to Ramen! The restaurant is called “Ramen Kumagori” – and it is located in Hiroshima, Japan.
They proudly serve a Ramen noodle bowl that is, IN THEIR OWN WORDS:
“Ramen that’s too disgusting to eat!”
Oh, and it has mackerel, AS IF YOU’D MISS IT…
The Rules Of The Restaurant!
First, some rules – Melissa, stay with me now – first, the restaurants requires you to sit away from all of the other diners so they won’t throw up at the smell…and if you can keep the dish down, your meal is free!
The geniuses at RocketNews24 have tried to consume this monstrosity, and you can read all about the attempt, in graphic detail, by clicking on their link here – it is as usual a terrifically entertaining adventure:
Kudos once again to the masterminds at RocketNews24 – a daily “must read!” They uncover everything from Ramen dishes like this:
And A Toilet Restaurant As Well!
Yes, RocketNews24 also has exciting new restaurant adventures like this! There is a restaurant that serves you an entire meal inside a toilet bowl – while you sit on one…
As you can see, there is no shortage of strange places to eat in the world…I love food adventures, no matter how strange they may seem…like this one – anyone hungry at 10,000 feet?
Hang Out For A Great Meal!
I also wrote about the world’s craziest restaurant experiences like this one, where you are lifted by a crane high over a city to dine, and you can read all about them by clicking here:
So, to everyone who made it this far, Ramen “too disgusting to eat” can now be added to your bucket list! Let me know what you think, and Melissa, comment if you made it this far, everyone wants to know how you feel about Ramen NOW!
