Ramen is popular around the world. It is Chinese-style noodles in a soy or miso broth. Toppings include pork, seaweed and bamboo. A restaurant in Taiwan has a new ingredient – crocodile foot. Photos of it have spread on social media. Internet users call it "Godzilla ramen". There is a long wait to eat at the restaurant.

The ramen is $50 a bowl. It takes three hours to cook. The chef makes just 10 feet a day. He uses 40 types of ingredients. He cooks the foot in the broth. Some customers are "afraid" to try the ramen. Many customers say it tastes like chicken." In Taiwan, it is legal to eat crocodiles that are not protected.
