If you are fans of Tsuta, you should pay attention.
The world’s first Michelin-starred ramen unveiled its biggest menu revamp with 80% new items. It premieres Tsuta’s first Crab Soba, R.H.C.P Mazesoba plus new sides to boot.
The star of the menu – Crab Soba with Premium Char Siu and Crab Shell ($23.80) is pleasing to the eye and satisfy our stomachs. The Japanese snow crab has been lightly seasoned and torched flame, imparting the chunks of snowy white meat a fresh, flavourful oceanic taste. There’s also tender Iberico pork belly and Kurobuta pork loin, all layered on top of the umami-filled broth for the picking. It’s pure land and sea delight.
The R.H.C.P Mazesoba ($11.80) is one of Chef Yuki’s new dishes and a tribute to his favourite band – Red Hot Chili Peppers. It takes on Japanese favourite, hamburg but made with mazesoba where al-dente thick chewy noodles, drenched in house-made tomato sauce, are served with minced beef and house-made cheese sauce. While it tastes more like a tomato-based spaghetti than a burger to us, its still quite an interesting dish with robust flavours.
For long-time fans of their soba don’t fret yet, Tsuta has reintroduced the old classics – the Shoyu and Shio Soba. The Shoyu Soba with Char Siu ($16) is further enhanced with addition of a piquant balsamic black truffle sauce, giving it a full-bodied yet delicate taste. While existing menu are overhauled, Chef Yuki Onishi’s commitment that every bowl of ramen is served with 0 MSG and no artificial flavourings remain unchanged.
Chef Yuki also made a personal rendition on all-time favourite classic Chinese dishes with the likes of Soboro Meshi ($6) or mala lu rou fan, and Teriyaki Chicken Bao (1 piece at $2.80 or 3 pieces at $6.80). These kong bak pau slider is so easy to bite into, the juicy teriyaki chicken thigh meat is so tender and flavourful, sandwiched in a soft and fluffy bun. It can just be a meal by itself.
