HONG KONG -- One noodle vendor in Hong Kong was serving up dishes so tasty, customers were literally losing their minds over them. Well, maybe it was the recipe, but it was most likely the powdered poppy plant he was using.

In case you don't know, poppies are used to make opium!

The chef's jig was up, after cops arrested a customer who tested positive for opium not long after eating a bowl of the naughty-noodles.

The vendor's been detained for 10 days after he admitted he used the poppy power in his dishes, to make them taste better, and to keep customers coming back. We just want to know if the first bowl was free, too!
