The 18-seater restaurant at Pacific Plaza created a stir in Singapore on its first day! Crowds queued as early as 8.30am before its opening time at 11am.

So, what is so great about the first outpost of Tsuta Tokyo?

Firstly, all the noodles are handmade!

Diners get to choose from eight types of ramen cooked either in Shoyu or Shio broth.

The Shoyu soup stock is made with chicken, vegetables, and seafood, and is complemented with a fragrant black truffle sauce, giving it that delectable umami flavour.
