We're fairly confident in our ability to flambé at FDL and have tried it many times, but even the resident food lovers of the office had to stop and take a look at this food performance from a Japanese chef.
From the Men Baka Ichidai restaurant in Kyoto, Japan, the chef is seen serving his ramen with a rather personal touch. Rather than crispy seaweed or one final dash of coriander, the chef instead sets fire to his customers food sending flames high enough to touch the ceiling. We can't see the health and safety teams in most restaurants allowing this one but we guess the smoky flame grilled finish makes these noodles taste great.
Rather than just being faux-meat, Mamu is different. It's a mushroom-based meat alternative that's getting its launch in restaurants so that chefs can test its versatility. Flora Tsapovsky investigates.
