A new Japanese ramen stand in Shanghai is attracting curious customers for their two unusual chefs, Toya and Kona.
The ramen stand,Toyako, opened in December and is located on Daming Road in the Hongkou district of Shanghai.
Toya and Kona are able to serve four types of ramen and can prepare each bowl in 90 seconds. They don’t prepare each bowl from scratch, but instead are able to boil water, cook the noodles, pour the proper amount of soup and add extra ingredients like beef or egg.
The restaurant owner, Liu Jin, claims the two robotic chefs cost him over $150,000 and sex years of research by a Japanese company. Jin told Shanghai Daily:
“You don’t get any problems with robots. They’ll never ask for leave and they won’t get sick.”
Each bowl of ramen costs just under $9 a bowl, which is considered expensive compared to more conventional ramen places, but customers still seem to find their meals quite tasty.
