Are you ready for a culinary experience that looks out of this world? And we only say ‘looks’ because it actually comes from the depths of our oceans. 

A ramen restaurant in Taiwan is taking their brand to new heights with the introduction of their new dish with the addition of their ‘dream ingredient’. For many others, this may very well be out of their nightmares.

The Ramen Boy took to their Facebook page to present their King-Legged Worm ramen, in recognition of the deep sea 14-legged isopod, the Great King-Legged Worm, that tops their dish.

These giant isopods live in the cold deep sea, and inhabits the dark waters at 4 Degrees Celsius from 170 meters to 2,140 meters deep.

The Ramen Boy apparently steam the creatures and have said that its white meat tastes like lobster and crab meat, while its yellow glands tastes like crab roe.

“The overall taste is unexpectedly fresh and sweet!”

Okay, sure, we’re just going to trust you on that. 

These ingredients are then included in their chicken soup ramen, with the shell of the isopod adorned over the bowl in decoration of the dish.

“The Great King-Legged Worm is very cute, when I go to Japan, I’ll visit an aquarium to see it. The takeaway girl has just said that she doesn’t dare to come to work”, The Ramen Boy added.

If we worked at The Ramen Boy at this point, we would follow the takeaway girl’s suit and scurry out of there!

You can get the King-Legged Worm ramen at The Ramen Boy, Taipei City, Taiwan, for NT$1,480 (RM222).
