Ramen is one of the hottest foods on the culinary scene right now.
But at Menbakaichidai restaurant in Kyoto, Japan, master ram chefs are serving a dish that's literally living up to its name “Fire Ramen.”
According to First We Feast, the father-son-duo who run the popular restaurant thought of the idea 30 years ago.
The dish starts out with a soy-based broth, green onion, pork, and ramen noodles. After the bowl is brought to your table, stand back. Patrons are given a paper apron—and a hair tie for those with loose strands—before the bowl gets a few spoon fulls of hot oil.
Then the chefs ignite the soup, causing flames to shoot up.
Menbakaichidai currently has a five-bubble rating on TripAdvisor and the restaurant even offers classes on how to perfect your own ramen skills—without the fiery endings.
Fire Ramen at Menbakaichidai costs just 1150 yen (about $9.34). Get your fire extinguisher and check out the too-hot-to-handle action below.
