$110 For A Bowl Of Ramen

Food is a common topic on 8asians, especially ramen noodles. So when a news article comes out on a bowl of noodles that costs $110 a bowl, of course we have to let you know about it. The “Five-Taste Blend Imperial Noodles” is offered at Tokyo’s Fujimaki Gekijyo restaurant and a creation of owner Shoichi Fujimaki. His $110 bowl is ultimately just a bowl of soup and noodles, but Fujimaki said it’s the soup, and the more than 20 ingredients used to make it, that elevates the dish from street food into five-star cuisine. By comparison, a typical bowl of ramen from a restaurant or food stall in Japan usually costs $10 at the most.

If you’re planning on trying out this new dish the next time you’re in Japan, you’ll have to work hard to get there. Fujimaki’s restaurant is a reservations-only eatery that has no menu and which customers can only dine in after they have already sampled cheaper fare at another restaurant he owns.
