Noodles that cost a boodle: $110 a bowl

These noodles cost a boodle: $110 a bowl - TODAY Food and wine

The "Five-Taste Blend Imperial Noodles" offered at Tokyo's Fujimaki Gekijyo restaurant is ultimately just a bowl of soup and noodles, albeit an expensive one, especially as Japan's economy slowly recovers from its worst recession since World War Two.

But owner Shoichi Fujimaki said it's the soup, and the more than 20 ingredients used to make it, that elevated the dish from street food into five-star cuisine, with the price tag to match
Who needs Campbell's cheap-o soup when you can have this soup instead


Have you had your habanero pepper today????
The hotter the pepper, the better the pepper!!!
