Ramen is popular around the world. It is Chinese-style wheat noodles in a soy sauce or miso broth. Common toppings include pork, dried seaweed, and bamboo shoots. The Witch Cat Kwai restaurant in Taiwan has added a new ingredient – crocodile foot. Photos of it have spread on social media. Internet users call it "Godzilla ramen". There is a long waiting list to eat at the restaurant. It is fully booked.

At $50 a bowl, the ramen is not cheap. It takes about three hours to cook. The chef makes just 10 feet a day. He uses 40 types of ingredients. First, he cleans the foot. Then, he puts spices on it. Finally, he cooks it in the broth. Some customers are "afraid" to try it. The chef said: "A lot of customers say crocodile meat tastes like chicken." In Taiwan, it is legal to eat crocodiles that are not protected species.
