In Atlanta, Georgia is the world's first-ever glowing ramen noodle bar, created by Bompas & Parr in collaboration with Zoo-as-Zoo. The Nakamura.ke Lumen Ramen Bar pop-up will be open for a short time in the United States before it will make its move to Paris.
Previously, Bompas & Parr has experimented with luminescence and this new project allowed it to draw from its expertise to create unique ramen dishes by experimenting with Vitamin B2, quinine levels and natural food coloring.
Those who visit the glow-in-the-dark ramen bar will be astounded by more than just the food, as the entire sensory experience is enriched with tales of mythical spirits from Japanese folklore, who are said to "serve their bioluminescent ramen in the underworld."
