There Was A 10-Day Wait For The 'World's Best' Ramen Restaurant In Taiwan

Japan's Ichiran ramen restaurant recently opened its doors in Taipei, Taiwan, and caused such hype that customers formed a round-the-clock line outside for 10 straight days.

According to EJ Insight, the average wait time was around one hour and 40 minutes with over 200 people in line at a time.

The 240-hour wait beat the restaurant's own record: a 196-hour (or a little over eight days) wait time when its Hong Kong location opened in 2013.


If you think waiting in line for 10 days is a little excessive, the famous ramen restaurant was named the "best ramen in the world" by Forbes in 2016.
