The internet has deemed ice-cream ramen the Next Big Thing

You may have already seen the words ‘ice-cream ramen’ knocking about on social media, so we feel it’s important to firstly say this – the dish we are discussing is most definitely not ramen-flavoured ice cream (though apparently that has actually existed).

The scarily neon bowl you see before you and doing the rounds online is a pud from New York’s The Dessert Kitchen.

Though actually neither ramen nor ice cream, the dish (dubbed ‘ice stream noodles’) combines crushed ice with coloured kanten (jelly-like agar noodles) and fruit, drawing ramen-like comparisons as customers choose a ‘broth’ of flavoured condensed milk.

Given it possesses the eminently shareable characteristics of being colourful and food, it’s causing a bit of a fuss online, with one picture on popular Instagram account @feedyourgirlfriend attracting thousands of likes.

However it's not a particularly unusual combination in east and southeast Asia: in Japan, kakigลri, a dish of shaved ice and condensed milk, is popular in summer while cendol, a jelly noodle dish in coconut milk, is eaten in Indonesia.

So on with the ice-cream ramen, say we. We're just happy it's not some unholy mix of bone broth and Mr Whippy.
