Very Unique Food Event Coming to Mississauga

For many years, ramen was scare in Mississauga.

So scarce, in fact, that you had to drive all the way to Toronto to enjoy gourmet noodles in a hip restaurant setting.

Recently, all that changed. Several years after Kenzo Ramen finally set up shop in Mississauga, Kinton and Sansotei joined the fold, essentially turning Mississauga's City Centre neighbourhood into a raman hotspot.

And now, it looks like something else is coming for ramen lovers.

Kinton Ramen, which recently opened in the Parkside Village condos on Confederation Parkway, announced that its Mega Ramen Challenge is coming to Mississauga.

Voracious eaters are being invited to battle against the Mega Shoyu Ramen on August 14 at the resto.

The event will run from 5:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Kinton says that contenders that finish the bowl in 15 minutes or less will receive the Mega Shoyu Ramen for free and a Kinton Ramen t-shirt.

As for what's in the dish, Kinton says it features eight pieces of pork belly, three pieces of pork shoulder and three times the normal amount of thick noodles.

Naturally, there are some rules.

Participants must be 18 years of age or older, must complete the challenge in 15 minutes (and pay the full $35 price if they do not succeed), not leave their seats during the challenge (no bathroom breaks!) and be totally finished (no food in their mouth or bowl) by the time the 15 minutes is up.

But while the urge to win might be strong, operators are encouraging participants not to push themselves too hard.

Participants must sign a waiver that voids Kinton Ramen of any responsibility should they become ill (or spill the ramen on their expensive outfit). They must also swear that to the best of their knowledge, they are physically and mentally fit to enter the challenge.

Only three mega ramens will be offered at a time.
