Ramen comes in many varieties but, when you're slurping your way through a hearty bowl of noodles and broth, you generally know what you're going to get. You usually know that you're tucking into an affordable meal, too — whether you're hitting up your favourite ramen joint in Sydney or working your way through every eatery you can find on a trip to Japan.

At Haymarket's Gumshara, it's levelling up its ramen game — all thanks to one over-the-top dish that literally comes gleaming with gold. Called 'rags to riches' ramen, the bowl is topped with a full lobster, too, including a tempura tail and a golden head as a garnish.

Using more than 15 kilograms of pork and lobster, also featuring a soft-boiled seasoned egg, bamboo shoots and spring onions, and adding a sheet of golden nori as well, this decadent dish takes more than 12 hours to make. Also, it's valued at $400. That said, you can't actually purchase it. If you'd like to feast your way through the most expensive ramen you're ever likely to come across — which is being called the world's most expensive ramen, in fact — you'll have to try to win a serving.

The 'rags to riches' ramen has been created by Gumshara in collaboration with Five Star Games, to help celebrate the launch of the latter's new Yakuza: Like a Dragon title — the eighth in the franchise — on Xbox and Playstation. To win, you need to be a New South Wales resident, and you'll want to head to @XboxANZon Twitter from midday on Tuesday, October 20 to find out how to enter. The competition is open until Tuesday, November 10, the day the game hits stores.

To win Gumshara 'rags to riches' ramen, head to @XboxANZ on Twitter from midday on Tuesday, October 20 until Tuesday, November 10.
