It’s baaaaaaaaack.

The challenge that took Vancouverites by storm last fall is returning, but this time Yuu Japanese Tapas’ $5 Ramen Challenge comes with a few new options for daring diners willing to take on this monstrous foodie feat.

If you recall, the first challenge asked patrons to finish their bowl of ramen (including broth) in under 10 minutes and if they succeded the bowl would only cost them $5.

This round, the challenge is the same, except there are a few options you can choose to up your ramen game.  You can choose from shoyu, miso, tonkotsu, and shio bae, and each ramen comes with an egg, chashu, nori, bean sprouts, and green onions.

Ramen lovers can also opt for the Godzilla Fire Ramen, Yuu’s spiciest creation yet, and tackle it solo or with another person during the three-day run of this challenge.

The fastest time last go was 56 seconds, think you can crush that record? Try for yourself.
