🍜 Bad photo because I was starvinggggg by the time it came.
🍴
Decided to try the only Michelin Star Ramen, Tsuta. V strong whiff of truffle once you enter the shop. Went for the Miso Soba ramen since it was only available at Tai Seng. Got the ajitama miso soba because one egg and one slice of char siew sounds abt enough for me. Watched the chef do a ramen shake and toss into the bowl, and how they delicately placed the ingredients. Though my char siew and everything else still sank in 🤣. 🍴
When the bowl came, I thought the strong fermented miso smell tgt w the Mushroom oil just didn't quite gel. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Tried the soup before mixing in the chilli paste. It was like an overly fermented miso soup? The combination w raw bean sprouts and watercress just reminded me of Vietnamese Pho, rather than ramen. Lol. That dash of chopped onions didn't help w the flavour as well. And I couldn't figure out if my corn was burnt on purpose (zoom in to view chao ta corn) Maybe stir fried bean sprouts/cabbage would have made this better? The saving grace would be the springy Soba. All in all, I wouldn't say it was a bad bowl of Ramen, nor would I say it was a any good. it really failed to wow. #burpple #tsuta #michelinstar #michelinstarramen #sgfood

You can really taste the alcohol in the soup and glad that it is not overly salty and has no msg. There was actually a lot of ingredients hidden in the soup, bamboo shoots, bunapi mushrooms and spinach(I think?).🍜 Really love that touch of greens that just melted in my mouth. I finished the whole bowl of ramen broth till the bowl was dry 🙊

Bloop and the egg went in. Thick broth made of chicken and pork which confused my tastebuds a little. Add tabasco to give your ramen a slight kick. The soba (or super thin ramen) is topped w pork belly and shoulder. Tender and flavorful, it melts in your mouth when you eat it. Not too sure how the soft boil egg was supposed to be eaten, I threw it into the ramen, broke the egg yolk in my spoon ful of soup and gulped it down w some ramen. 👍🏻 it made it sweet and smooth! Pretty good deal, all these for $16.

Was attracted by the mentaiko that was supposed to be in the aka ramen. Didn't taste that but taste the thick pork birth instead. I always top off my ramen w sesame and garlic if it's available. Soup and noodles were pretty good. Only gripe was that the bean sprouts were raw. The rawness of the bean sprouts took away the flavour of the soup if you eat it together.

It sure was good, but would have preferred to have some sweet corn and towgay to refresh the taste buds from the very thick and flavourful soup.

We got the number 1(miso tonkuzen) and number 11(seafood based shoyu) and Gyoza and Dashimaki tamago for sides. Both soups were very delicious! But a warning for the seafood based shoyu is that it can get a bit ge lad. I love the springy noodles! We requested that they cook the noodles till hard and it was well executed. The Dashimaki tamago is light and tasty while the Gyoza was flavourful.

I love crabs 😍 just had to order when I saw it. Crab stock ramen + seaweed + egg + spicy minced pork. Yum! The crab stock was more like a sauce rather than soup. Thought I would get gelat of it but I actually finished all the "soup" It is very thick and flavourful. The noodles for this is thicker than the normal ramen. I actually like it thicker! And you have to try the spicy minced pork if you have never had it before. It is stir fried with chilli and anchovies, giving it a slightly otah taste. 😍 Got to love how all te flavours went well tgt.

Said to be made for singaporean's taste,but I guess my taste isn't typical singaporean? The soup was thick but a bit too salty, you don't taste the porkiness. The noodles was a bit too soft for my liking, I like hard noodles. D< The saving grace was the tender char siew though. For $18.90, it wasn't very worth it. :/ It was $13.90 for a bowl of ramen and + $2 for the egg. On top of that, there's gst plus service charge (though their service was actually quite good)

I have a thing for dipping ramens, so I zeroed on it straight away. The ramen egg and cha shu hides underneath the nori while they serve it with bonito powder on top. Felt like the broth could be thicker and the bonito powder didn't really add value to it. I like that they offer lean cha shu (though not as tasty). Guess it's ok for $10.90 though it definitely cannot compare to the tsukeman ramen I had in Tokyo.

Decided to try it after all the hype. However I'm quite disappointed w the service. They didn't ask for the hardness of noodles nor the oil, though it was indicated in the menu. The soup was quite flavourful, and then from then on it was downhill. The egg wasn't flowy enough and the cha shu had an overpowering pork taste. They probably didn't bring along any element of their Michelin star from Japan..But for $8.90, maybe I can overlook all these?

Back to my favourite ramen place in Singapore ^^ I swear it's better than some ramens in Tokyo! Love the spicy hei bi hiam taste with the pork broth. Also love that the pork was stir fried with onions, making it really fragrant!

I actually prefer tori king broth to their tonkotsu broth. Probably because the chicken broth is more unique? And more flavourful in a different way. The black spicy is good but green spicy is still the best!
