Michelin-starred ramen, known for their lip-smacking broth, opens up at Orchard
The Michelin-starred noodle specialist has recently opened its first outlet outside of Japan, right here in Singapore. Founder and chef Yuki Onishi uses a customized soy sauce, mixed with two other shoyu for the dashi, and even the noodles are a unique blend of four types of whole wheat flour. Choose from shoyu soba, which has a dash of black truffle sauce; the shio soba, which consists of a blend of chicken and seafood, rock salt, red wine and rosemary; and the lighter miso soup.
The Michelin-starred Japanese Soba Noodles Tsuta, originally from Japan has made this outlet in Singapore its first outside of Japan. Located at Pacific Plaza, this 18-seater restaurant brings the same critically acclaimed flavors that founder and chef Yuki Onishi offers in its Japan outlet.
The secret of its success lies in its carefully selected ingredients, a mixture of sauces used for the base of the soy broth. Onishi works closely with a shoyu brewer in Wakamaya Prefecture that creates a soy sauce to his specifications, mixed with two other shoyu for the dashi (soup stock). Even their noodles are unique; made with four types of whole wheat flour for a nice bite and smooth texture. Starting from $14 for a bowl, you can choose from three different types of soup bases—the Shoyu Soba, which has a dash of black truffle sauce; the Shio Soba, which consists of a blend of chicken and seafood, rock salt, red wine and rosemary; and the Miso soup, which has a lighter yet robust flavor.
