The World’s First Michelin-Starred Ramen Eatery Opens Second Outpost at Harbour City this Fall

Tsuta, since the opening day of its first store at Hong Kong Ramen Alley – Tang Lung Street in Causeway Bay, back in May this year, the waiting queue there has never stopped. 
 
This new ramen trend, in less than 4 months’ time, is making its presence felt in Kowloon by opening another store at Harbour City, and to become one of the newest neighbor in this prestigious location where so many famous brands around the world can be found. The new Tsuta shop is located at the ground level near Haiphong Road, right next to the Gateway Hotel, and definitely will give customers a whole new dining experience. 
 
Miso Soba - A new star addition that brings out the truth in miso 
 
To celebrate this special occasion, “Miso Soba” will be exclusively available in this new shop in the beginning. Normally, miso is made by mixing soybean, rice and wheat together. But Hatcho Miso is made of 100% soybean from the Tokushima Prefecture in Shikoku, Japan. This darker, reddish brown miso is stored in traditional oak barrels to ferment for two to two-and-a-half years, in order to produce the unique and deep flavor. 
 
Miso Soba is also using the famed Tsuta’s dashi (soap base) recipe, with whole chickens, fresh clams, dried fish, and is simmered for 9 hours each day to create a clear broth. Every part of this dish is carefully calibrated to provide the ultimate umami experience: full, earthy, fermented miso broth for those hearty slurps. Porcini mushroom oil and a dash of chilli paste for some added bite that liberates the broth. Thicker noodles to complement the heavier broth. All topped off with freshly cut onions and pan-fried corn to add a sweeter dimension to the meal.
 
A front row seat next to a stylish centered kitchen to experience this feast for the senses 
 
The new Harbour City shop inherited the Japanese flagship’s simple and refined style, decorating the restaurant with wooden, minimalistic and bright design elements, showcasing a warm, homey environment; but at the same time, one can feel the city vibration by looking at the unstopped flow of people entering and leaving Harbour City. The kitchen is situated in the center, enabling customers to experience Tsuta’s dedication from a very close perspective. 
 
And this new shop is bigger than its Causeway Bay sister shop. With 21 bar stools surrounding  the kitchen area and another 10 stools looking outside, it will have more space to satisfy all those epicureans. And to accommodate the increase in traffic, two sets of stoves with two teams of chefs will be used in the shop. 
 
Immerse yourself in the luxurious surrounding and enjoy 
 
In the latest Michelin Guide Hong Kong, out of the seven newly starred restaurants, four are located at Harbour City. With the addition of Tsuta, it will make this place even more lively. 
 
Tsuta inherits the traditional Japanese ramen dedication, and pays extreme attention to soup base, noodle making, cooking and service; every detail counts. This is to ensure ramen lovers get to experience the fact ‘every bowl of ramen is made specifically for you’. Tsuta advocates for 'Ultimate Freshness’, ‘Handmade’ and ‘Freshly Made’, and makes sure to use only fresh ingredients to create the dashi, along with traditional skills to handmake noodles each day; Tsuta goes above and beyond to provide high quality noodles with no MSG involved. 
 
A small token to show gratitude 
Happiness is meant to be shared, and a delicate “Tsuta” umbrella is specially prepared to achieve this. Every day, 30 pieces will be given out to customers with minimum purchase of HK$300 (first come first serve, available while stock lasts).
