Tsuta 蔦 – 1st Michelin Ramen Shop In The World Opening In Singapore At Orchard
[Tokyo] Tsuta 蔦 is the first ever ramen joint to get a Michelin star, which is an indication of its exceptional quality. (Read: 10 Must-Try Ramen & Tsukemen at Tokyo)
The 9-seater ramen eatery serves soba in ramen style (850 yen), known for its soy based broth where the soy is aged for 2 years.
Noodles are made with four types whole wheat flour, chashu served with black truffle sauce, and broth an umami chicken-seafood blend, along with rock salt, red wine and rosemary infusions.
Perfection in execution.
Only 150 bowls of ramen are served daily – priced at ¥1,000 to ¥1,500 (S$13 to S$20) a bowl.
Note: Super, duper long queue.
Queues form as early as 6am every morning, even though the shop only opens at 11am.
So what diners do is to first queue for tickets at 8am (!) for the day’s seatings.
Now, the good news.
Tsuta’s Singapore outpost will open in Pacific Plaza, along Orchard Road in October – adjacent to the upcoming Kam’s Roast Goose outlet.
Info from the press release: The intimate 18-seater will offer ramen in three soup bases: a Miso Soba; a Shio Soba made with an enticing chicken-seafood broth, rock salt, red wine and rosemary; and Tsuta’s signature Shoyu Soba, made with dashi brewed from a combination of beef, chicken, clams and and three types of soy sauces, including one specially brewed by an artisanal soy sauce producer in Japan’s Wakayama prefecture.
Looking forward to it!
