A bizarre new menu item has been making headlines in Asia, after a Taiwanese restaurant introduced a new ramen dish – with a twist.
The Godzilla ramen features traditional ramen broth, boiled eggs, a variety of vegetables and meats alongside the signature noodles, and a crocodile leg.
The reptilian limb is prepared by steaming and braising, before it makes its way into the NT$1,500 (£37.94) bowl of noodles.
Nu Wu Mao Kuei restaurant, in Douliu city, announced the new menu item on its Facebook page after owners were reportedly inspired by a giant isopods ramen sold at a Taipei eatery.
In a video to go with the announcement, a young female customer samples the dish and says the braised meat has a taste similar to pork feet.
The soup contains over 40 spices, and the owner reportedly learned how to make the spicy “witch soup” during a trip to Thailand, national news outlet SETN reported.
Crocodiles used for the dish are sourced from a farm in Taitung, and bowls are limited since the farm is only able to supply two crocodiles a day.
