Foodies and ramen enthusiasts rejoice! The world’s first ever Michelin-starred ramen shop, Tsuta, opens in Singapore next month!
If you are on the hunt for world class cuisine that promises to challenge your palate without breaking the bank, this is it.
Where and When?
Tsuta Singapore will be located at 9 Scotts Road, Pacific Plaza.
The bad news? The restaurant will only open their doors sometime in October.
Unless you are already in Japan, at which we suggest you to head over ASAP, we can only look at pictures…
Meanwhile, here’s something you can salivate at.
As much as we want a steaming hot bowl of Tsuta’s ramen to devour this instant, maybe the phrase ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder’ can apply to our stomachs as well?
Tsuta in Japan
This is the first overseas venture for Tsuta. The original shop is located in Sugamo, a neighbourhood in Toshima, Tokyo.
In Japan, Tsuta is a 9-seater joint that serves roughly 150 bowls of ramen a day. In addition, it is one of the most affordable Michelin-Starred establishments you can visit.
As a result, it is not surprising for queues to start forming outside the small shop in Japan as early as 6 in the morning.
The catch? The shop only opens at 11am for business.
Tsuta Singapore will offer 3 different soup bases. They are the renowned shoyu soba, infused with their signature black truffle oil, shio soba, and miso.
Furthermore, the noodles used in Tsuta are said to be a blend of 4 different kinds of whole wheat flour. Say hello to consistently firm yet smooth noodles!
In keeping with tradition, the Singapore branch will be a small 18-seater joint.
Most importantly, Chef Onishi himself will be supervising the kitchen to ensure similar standards to that of the original. Yum.
According to Chef Onishi, the restaurant was not short on offers since they snagged the award.
What made him choose the eventual partner from Singapore? It was simply the fact that unlike others, the Singaporean had made the effort to get in line and taste the food himself. Guess something good came out of Singaporeans love for queuing.
In Japan, Tsuta usually opens from 11am to 4pm. Unless the ingredients run out before that. However, there is still no word on how the Singapore stall will operate.
The ramen from Tsuta, described as THE best ramen in the world, is no small feat considering that Chef Onishi only opened the restaurant in 2012.
We really can’t wait!
