This is why we love the San Gabriel Valley. While other competitive eating contests are dominated by pizzas and hot dogs, the San Gabriel Valley prefers competing with ramen.

Ton-Chan Ramen on Las Tunas is hosting a ramen eating contest on May 20 from 3-5 p.m. The first-place winner will receive a year of free ramen, second and third will both receive six months of free ramen.

Those interested can just show up at the restaurant. Or to RSVP, tweet the restaurant at its handle @TonChanRamen or email WeLoveTonChanRamen@gmail.com. The entry fee is $10.

It is not.
