With Valentine's Day approaching, Tokyo ramen chain Menya Musashi is offering a limited menu, chocolate ramen. 
 
What does it taste like? 
 
Let's find out. 
 
STANDUP(ENGLISH):MA ZHENG, CNC correspondent:
"Valentine's Day is coming. Japanese shops have rolled out all kinds of chocolates products. The ramen shop behind me is offering a special chocolate ramen to celebrate Valentine's Day. Whether it's a delicacy or a disaster for the stomach? Let's find out."
 
It seemed a little bit weird to combine chocolate and ramen together.
 
However, Menya Musashi honors Valentine's Day by offering a special chocolate ramen during the first two weeks of February each year.
 
The dish is served in two bowls, one of which contains the noodles and toppings, and the other has the sauce in which you dip the noodles.
 
The dipping broth, with milk bubbles and heart-shaped chocolate powders on the top, contains more than one bar of Ghana chocolate. 
 
The noodle toppings include greens, chashu pork, small tomatoes and a piece of chocolate.

"It is called Tsuke Ghana 2018. We developed this ramen with the cooperation of the candy company. Because it is tsukemen-style ramen, we need to dip the noodles into the broth and then eat. We put chocolate truffles in the broth, giving the noodles a sweet fragrance."
 
Kusumi said the chocolate ramen is especially popular among female customers. 
 
As the cooking process is more complicated, and the materials are more expensive, they only offer 20 bowls of Tsuke Ghana 2018 per day.
