The first Michelin-starred Ramen in Tokyo by Master Chef Onishi Yuki has finally opened its doors in the Philippines!
Tsuta originated from Chef Yuki’s ancestral family name and from the strong belief that Ramen is the “noodles of which Japan can boast to the world.” He actually prefers to use the term Soba, which literally means “Japanese Noodles,” instead of Ramen, which is from the Chinese word Lamian (拉麵 noodles). This does not refer to our common understanding of soba as the fat buckwheat noodles.
Some Filipinos think it’s already too late for Tsuta’s entry into the Ramen Game in Manila. While this may be true for ho-hum quality ramen, it’s never too late for high-quality ones like Tsuta, as proven by its successful launch in mature ramen markets like Singapore, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.
So, is Tsuta better than Ramen Nagi or Ippudo? Read on to find out.
