Tsuta Japanese Noodles

Japanese ramen is hugely popular in Hong Kong, attested by long queues that routinely form at the city’s ramen outlets. So, it was good news for ramen foodies when Tsuta, of Tokyo, and the first ramen eatery to receive a Michelin star, opened its first restaurant in Hong Kong recently. 
 
Tsuta was founded by Onishi Yuki in 2012 in the Sugamo neighbourhood of Tokyo. Yuki, who originally worked in the fashion industry but born to a ramen-serving family, created a unique ramen menu by mixing traditional ramen with truffles. Tsuta’s ramen proved to be hugely hit, setting a queueing record of five hours to get in and garnering accolades and awards along the way.
 
To maintain its high standards, Tsuta, like its Japanese sister, limits its output to 400 bowls daily. The key of Tsuta’s ramen lies in the meticulous preparation of both the noodles and its famous dashi, or soup base, which is made with whole chicken, fresh clams, dried fish, all simmered for nine hours to create a clear broth. 
 
The ramen comes in two flavours: Shoyu Soba, with Tsuta’s secret-formula soy sauce, and Shio Soba – a sauce made from Okinawa sea salt and Mongolian rock salt. 
 
The simple menu offers basic sobas priced from $98 to $149. A top choice is Char Siu Ajitama Shoyu Soba, which includes Char Siu (pork), flavoured egg, bamboo shoots, leek and puréed truffle in truffle oil. On the side are rice dishes including Niku Meshi($35) – diced roast pork, and Ro-su Meshi($35) – sliced roast pork.
 
Join the queue early for an unforgettable ramen experience at Tsuta.
