Would You Eat This Neon-Colored Noodle Soup?





If you think it’s Play-doh, then you’re completely mistaken. These vibrantly-colored dishes which look like they’re made from modelling clay are in fact, edible.

Kurare Raku, who identifies himself as a “bad scientist”, created the colorful variations of udon for the Unbelievable Science Festival held in Japan. He calls his recipe the “Electrical Udon”.


Kurare is a Japanese science writer whose major in college was Biochemistry.

His bizarre-looking dish, the “Electrical Udon”, was composed of neon pink and green noodles, neon green broth, and blue tofu.

According to Raku, he used “fluorescence chemicals” to color the noodles. Although it looks totally different, the taste is similar to that of ordinary udon.
