Welcome to 2023, where a steaming bowl of ramen topped with a 14-legged giant isopod is no longer confined to the realm of science fiction—it's a tantalising $65 reality. Has our culinary journey gone too far, or is this simply an evolutionary leap in our ever-evolving taste buds? Join Adan Jimenez, Claire Low and Joses Ho as they embark on a mouthwatering exploration of food pills, grey grunge, insects and carb-blocking juice shakes to push the boundaries of taste, contemplate the future of nourishment, and unveil the most bewildering and imaginative forms of food that blur the lines between fiction and reality.
