Imagine a world where you could eat ramen anywhere, anytime, without even the need of a bowl. A dream to us non-bearded schmucks, but a reality for Mr. Incredibeard, who has literally carved out a ramen bowl out of his own facial hair. Who needs soup bowl when you have one attached to your face?
Facial hair feats are Mr. Incredibeard's shtick, as he is known for his insane beard styles. Functional and fashionable (at least mostly), Mr. Incredibeard can transform his face into a ramen bowl, a cup holder, and even those weird tentacle-y face-things Davy Jones had in Pirates of the Caribbean. Mr. Incredibeard is truly the apex of manliness, and looks damn good too. See what we mean in the pics below.

Montreal food lovers missing their glory days of restaurant hopping rejoice: YATAI MTL, a festival dedicated to Japanese food and culture, is back with Japan Week, a mixture of both online and in-person events from June 7 to 13.
Opening night on Monday, June 7, at Café Osmo (51, rue Sherbrooke Ouest) at 5 p.m., will feature a Japanese mini market and "official opening of the association between Café Osmo and the Japanese counter Marusan," according to a press release.
If a delicious meal that's made with love from a local restaurant and saves you a bit of cash is your ideal take-out trifecta, consider ordering something with eggs.
Eggs add a boost of flavour and nutrition to any meal. A serving of just two large eggs provides 13 grams of protein, plus vitamin A, D, E folate, iron, zinc and choline. What's even better is that they can be eaten at any time of the day: before work as breakfast, during your lunch break or while you wind down in the evening.
With so many Montrealers living, working and doing pretty much everything else from home these days, Get Cracking and SkipTheDishes have teamed up to make it easier than ever for Montrealers to enjoy the protein-packed goodness of eggs any time — and with a discount, too.
Starting May 10 and running for a limited time, search "EggsAnytime" on SkipTheDishes and get $5 off an egg-cellent meal from participating restaurants. Be forewarned: you might just be tempted to order, eat, repeat.
Why You Need To Try It: Like a warm hug after a long day, ramen reigns supreme when it comes to comfort food, and Tsukuyomi's Chicken Tonkatsu is definitely no exception.
Packed full of noodles, pork bone broth, braised chicken, nori, spinach, bean sprouts and, of course, a seasoned egg (but would it even be ramen without it?), what sets Tonkatsu apart from the rest is the silky smooth consistency of its creamy broth that'll have you slurping the bowl clean.
Why You Need To Try It: Marché Italian Le Richmond's Capricciosa Pizza is a mouthwatering meal whether you order it fresh or for later.
It's not just the perfectly crisp crust and ooey-gooey mozzarella that makes this a delicious go-to, but the addition of hard-boiled eggs, artichokes, tomatoes, cooked ham and mushrooms. While a great dish for sharing, you might just want this one all to yourself.
Why You Need To Try It: Fleurs et Cadeaux's Katsudon features breaded and fried pork loin pan-cooked with dashi broth, egg and onion. Served over rice, it's a great protein-packed dish to keep you full and feelin' fine all day long.
If a picture speaks a thousand words, then this dish might as well pen its own novel because it's one you're sure to remember.
Why You Need To Try It: It's the simplicity of Ruby Rouge's fried eggs with shrimp — like so many dishes from this Chinatown staple — that make it as tasty as it is wholesome. It's the kind of meal you can even enjoy for lunch, dinner, on the go, or just 'cause.
Why You Need To Try It: You may be familiar with the Croque-Monsieur, but if you've yet to become acquainted with its spouse, the Croque-Madame, it's high time to introduce yourself.
Duc de Lorraine's Croque-Madame keeps it real delish with a fried egg and broiled béchamel atop a toasted ham and cheese sandwich. The yolk actually acts as a sort of sauce the second you bite into it, infusing the sandwich with even more flavour.
Why You Need To Try It: Hitting all the flavour notes that make a dish truly delicious, it's with good reason that pad thai is so popular. Springy rice noodles, sauce that'll send your tastebuds to heaven, scrambled-in eggs and veggies all colours of the rainbow making Soupe & Roll's Pad Thai as gram-worthy as it is appetizing.
Address: Currently 1008, rue Clark, Montreal, QC, for delivery.
Why You Need To Try It: Get ready to savour the flavours of Restaurant Jade's Minced Pork and Preserved Egg with Rice Congee. Sometimes called "century egg", a preserved egg is one that's been aged in a mixture of ash, clay, salt, quicklime and rice hulls. The result is an explosion of flavour that makes this ingredient a must-try, at least once.
For $5 off one of these dishes, search "EggsAnytime" on SkipTheDishes, select the restaurant of your choice and pick the menu item that grabs your eye. The offer is active between 11am and midnight every day during the promotion, and the discount will be automatically applied to your order.
Whether you choose warm and hearty ramen, delicious pizza or cheesy Croque-Madame, these Montreal restaurants have tasty, egg-filled meals that you can enjoy at any time of the day.
The ramen restaurant always has amazing monthly specials, so we're sure this one won't disappoint.
The dish is made with "thick noodles in a vegetarian miso broth topped with pork belly, onsen tamago, kakiage, sweet corn, scallions, nori, chilli pepper, chilli oil, butter, and a blow-torched tomato with swiss cheese."
For an extra $2, you can also add another onsen tamago, which is basically the equivalent of eggs benny.
The dish is available for just $14.95 for takeout and delivery.
It may be a breakfast dish, but we're sure it makes for a great meal any time of day.
Just be sure to give it a try before March 31.
We can't wait to taste it! What about you?
