For lunch, I was today going all in and tried chocolate ramen. Very nice that this kind of noodle soup is not just "set in stone", but also experiments like this are done. Worth to be tried out!
@globalc But how was it? Did you like it? (Ramen and chocolate seem on two different ends of a scale to me.)
@josch One tastes that it has a normal ramen as base. Then I was prepared for a "this is what cacao tastes without any sweet" feeling, but it actually was a bit sweeter than normal ramen. It clearly has the typical cacao taste.
It was an experience worth to be had, but not that good that I really really have to eat it a further time in the few weeks left when these are available.

@ilyess The typical chocolate was there, but it was not overly strong. It was also not very sweet, quite eatable. A bit like chocolate bars which put emphasis on chocolate taste instead of sweetness.
It was hot, like normal ramen.
@globalc Oh almost like cocoa-flavoured ramen. That sounds not bad actually. Please keep us posted when you try other unusual Japanese dishes.
