Holiday Jack pulled an April Fool's prank in 2019 that left a lot of foodies angry — the Japanese event creators boasted a fictitious piranha ramen recipe. Now, in September, the business is actually attempting to keep its word, signifying that there is nothing more powerful than consumer demand in these environments.
For four days in September — from the 20th until the 23rd, the Ninja Cafe and Bar in Tokyo will be adding piranha ramen to its menu. The dish is authentic to the bone, as it includes "the world's first 100% piranha broth." The key ingredient was derived from the Amazon River in South America. However, the piranha ramen extravaganza is made available in limited quality — only 100 bowls on opening day, and 300 servings per day for the remainder.
