A ramen shop in Tokyo, aptly named Niku-ya (Butcher Shop) takes pork ramen to a whole new level. Every February 9th, you don’t get the normal amount of pork, you get 60 times the normal amount of pork, because February 9th is “Super Meat Day”. This means instead of 1 slice, you get 60 slices. You really have to see the video to understand just how much pork this is for one ramen bowl.
Even though the video is in Japanese, the imagery is what impresses. Each bowl has about 2 and 2/3rds to 3 pounds of pork!
As it turns out, Niku-ya doesn’t even consider themselves a ramen shop, they’re a meat shop, and so if you can’t make Feb 9, you can attend Meat Day on the 29th of each month. If any reader has visited, I’d love to see some pictures!
