It's about time I finally tried that rumored ยฅ1,000 ramen.

Chลซka Zanmai is a line of Chinese instant noodles from Myojo Foods. In 1987, they introduced the New Chลซka Zanmai line, including a deluxe series featuring hand-made ingredients and luxurious flavors like shark fin and abalone. 

The deluxe boxes were only available inside department stores and sold for ยฅ1,000 each, an outrageous price for prepackaged soup that apparently became a hot topic. (By comparison, as shown in this ad, the regular instant soup was ยฅ360 while the soup base alone was merely ยฅ120.)

The opulence of the period extended even to instant food.
