Located on the first floor of Pacific Plaza, this 18-seater ramen joint is Tsuta's first international outlet outside of Japan. There are only two soup variations on the menu of the world's only Michelin-starred ramen restaurant — shio (salt) or shoyu (soy sauce). Both soup bases stem from a chicken stock boiled with vegetables, clams and seafood for additional depth — think of it as soul-warming chicken noodle soup. Go for the crowd favourite Char Siu Ajitama Shoyu Soba ($22.80) that comes with the full works — four slices of char siu, flavoured egg, bamboo shoot and leek. The Tsuta rendition gets an unexpected umami boost from the scoop of truffle pureed in truffle oil. Otherwise, shio purists will enjoy tucking into the Char Siu Ajitama Shio Soba ($22.80). It comes with the same toppings, except that the the truffle is replaced by green olives in truffle oil.
Avg Price: $25 per person

Helmed by Chefs Masaaki and Rintaro, here is one of their savoury signatures, Wagyu Truffle Don $38. This bowl of goodness comprises of josper grilled wagyu beef, onsen egg on rice and then topped with fresh truffle slices. 🍱


My mum ordered the signature rice bowl-foie gras was perfect melt-in-your-mouth texture, and the beef was a lovely medium rare. Personally, I felt the bowl was a tad bit rich, but this is definitely a must for meat-lovers! The truffle sauce was minimal so it wasn't overpowering, and the runny yolk mixed really well with the rice as well! Yummy!


My favorite Grilllo Signature Bowl is the Truffle Short Rib Bowl — a sous vide then pan seared USDA Prime beef with a slow cooked egg, crunchy garlic bits and drizzled with truffle wafu sauce. Since this is a beef bowl, I appreciate that high quality beef that is tender and flavorful was used!


The hakata ramen noodles are serve chilled and tossed with truffle oil, then topped with shaved black truffle, slices of torched char shu and egg. This bowl of goodness brings ramen to a whole new level and interestingly I love the overall combination, while some may find the truffle aroma overwhelming. Review on the web, link in bio.
