A Japanese cafe in Tokyo is serving the world's first-ever Piranha Ramen to their patrons for a limited time, footage released on Monday shows.
Ramen lovers paid 3,000 yen ($28,20) for a bowl of piranha-broth noodles. Those willing to get their jaws around a whole piranha paid an additional 2,500 yen ($23,20 US dollars).
The taste of the specialty, just brought from the Amazon river, was very light according to customers.
What had started as an April's Fools' Day prank by the Holiday Jack Events Company turned out to be such a hit with ramen lovers, the events company ended up importing a 300-kilogram shipment of the predator from Brazil just to satisfy the hungry foodies.
The Ninja Cafe will only serve 1,000 bowls of the special noodles for only four days in September.
