A little color in your food makes for good Instagram photos, but this might be taking things a little too far.
Kipposhi in Japan serves up a dish that loosely translates to Clear Chicken Soup Blue, and the broth comes out to a sky bluish tint, according to Rocket News 24. Shout out to that Baja Blast ramen look though.
The restaurant uses “special Chinese cooking techniques” to make the broth clear, but they gave absolutely no explanation as to how they make the broth blue.
Mahshable seemed to find the secret, however, saying that spirulina algae is what’s causing the blue tint, as is the case with the blue “Smurf Lattes” from Australia’s Matcha Mylkbar.
Apart from the blue broth, the rest of the ingredients seem to be standard, with ramen noodles, fresh greens, a soft-boiled egg, and your choice of chicken, or chashu pork.
Can’t wait until they start going around the color wheel, with red, yellow, orange, green, indigo, and violet. It’s coming. Trust.
