Based on the world record nomination from Asia Records Institute (ASRI) and Decision No. WK/USA.INDIA/873/2022/No.329, World Records Union (WorldKings) officially declared Tsuta Ramen as the “World’s First Michelin-starred Ramen Restaurant.”
Japanese Soba Noodles Tsuta was opened in 2012 by chef Yuki Onishi in Sugamo, Tokyo. The name of the shop originates from Chef Yuki Onishi’s dream of nurturing ramen into a noodle dish that Japan will boast. Shortly after opening, the restaurant was listed in the top tier for new shops in the annual Tokyo Ramen of the Year (TRY) ranks in 2013. In 2015, this small 9-seat noodle shop caused a big whirlwind in the culinary world when it became the world’s first ramen shop to receive a coveted Michelin star.
The trademark dish here is 'Shoyu Soba', soy sauce ramen, comprising a chicken and seafood stock base, enhanced by a delicate soy sauce blend. Thin stone-milled noodles cradle a slice of pork, topped with their signature black truffle oil. All the flavours in the bowl combine to deliver a deep, intense umami experience.
The shop's first overseas branch opened on November 6, 2016 in Singapore. Gradually, the shop expanded its branches to many countries around the world and opened vending systems with clear English-language explanations of the food and easy to order instructions to help customers to enjoy this Michelin-starred ramen without having to wait in queue for too long.
