Hmm … even for me $110 seems pretty steep, especially since you’re required to eat at one of the chef’s cheaper restaurants before you’re allowed to eat at the restaurant that serves this mighty bowl of ramen. I wish Reuters included a photo of the "Five-taste Blend Imperial Noodles".
If chef Fujimaki does open a restaurant in LA (in August) I’m not sure the $110 price tag is gonna fly.

OK, OK, a quick Japanese Google search yielded this Japanese blog post with a (rather odd-looking) photo of the chef and the ramen in question. Reading the comments, it doesn’t seem like people are very receptive to this chef or his ideas about ramen. Comment #34 was particularly entertaining.
