Senior citizen the fastest to wolf down hot and spicy Ramyeon


DO YOU have what it takes to be the fastest person to wolf down a bowl of hot and spicy Ramyeon (Korean’s answer to Ramen)?

If your answer is yes, then take on the On Fire Ramen Challenge, held in conjunction with the Korean Food Fair from now till Sunday at Sungei Wang Plaza.

It is organised by KMT Trading Sdn Bhd and co-organised by The Street Cafe (Pacific Food Connection Sdn Bhd), which organised the Ramen challenge.

According to KMT Trading Sdn Bhd managing director Matthew Lee, there will be 150 products available at the food fair, such as Korean snacks, instant noodles, drinks, ice-cream, fruits, and seasoning.

“With globalisation, our lifestyles are getting similar.

“Our food fair has expanded over the years because Korean food is becoming more popular as people know more about Korea,” he said, adding that Korean instant noodles is a favourite product at the fair.

Customers who purchased RM50 and above can have a go at the Wheel of Fortune and stand the chance to win Korean food items.

Pacific Food Connection Sdn Bhd managing director Andrew Kim said the crowd-pulling Ramen challenge is a spin-off of what is offered at the restaurant.

“At our restaurant, challengers have to finish a bigger bowl in eight minutes. Those who succeed will have their photos placed on the ‘Hall of Fame’ while those who failed will be posted on the ‘Hall of Shame’,” he said.

Thomas Poon, 61, emerged champion in the first challenge last Saturday as he finished the spicy Ramyeon in less than five minutes.

“I love spicy food but this is by far the spiciest dish I’ve ever tried,” he said as he was wiping over sweat after the spicy ordeal.

If you think you can top that score, then join the next challenge this weekend (March 19 and 20) at 5pm.

The winner will walk away with a RM50 voucher by The Street Cafe, Korean products and “life-time free drinks” at The Street Cafe as “Hall of Famer”.

All participants will win a RM10 voucher from The Street Cafe.

Aside from the food fair and Ramen challenge, there will also be a Kpop dancing performance during weekends at 12pm and 3pm.

The Korean Food Fair will make its way to different malls in Penang, Ipoh, Johor and other states in Malaysia.
