Mega Ramen: Can you handle Toronto's latest food challenge?

Jan 3 2018, 1:15 pm

Loosen your pants, Toronto! Kinton Ramen has just introduced a new food challenge launching at the Baldwin Street location this January.

The Japanese Noodle House hosts the Mega Thai Paitan Ramen Challenge on January 9 and is challenging ambitious eaters to devour the whole thing within 15 minutes to earn the $35 bowl for free.

What does the massive noodle bowl entail? Start with a creamy chicken and coconut broth with coriander paste, add in eight orders of pork belly, three orders of pork shoulder, three orders of thick noodles, bean sprouts, fried onions, and shredded red pepper.

Participants are limited to three attempts per day per person and come with an exhaustive list of rules and disclaimers “for your own health.”

The rules, available in full on the event’s Facebook page, state that challengers must be 18 years of age and cannot share, stand, or leave their seats for the duration of the challenge. Participants will even be required to sign a waiver and “acknowledge there are risks associated with this event which include, but are not limited to, personal injury, risk of illness and possibly death, risk of loss, or damage to personal property.”

Mega Thai Paitan Ramen Challenge!

When: January 9, 5 pm to 9:30 pm
Where: Kinton Ramen, 51 Baldwin Street, Toronto
Price: $35 if you can’t finish within 15 minutes.
