Chabuton Presents Premium Tonkotsu Ramen, The Kurobuta

Chabuton is known to have one of the most affordable ramen, considering it's located in the heart of Orchard. Riding to their success, Chabuton opens it's third outlet at Star Vista in just five months. And this time, Chabuton introduces the first exclusive ramen dish created by world's first Michelin-starred ramen chef.

Chabuton Singapore is proud to present Premium Tonkotsu Ramen - The Kurobuta ($18.90), an exquisite dish created by Chef Yasuji Morizumi. The highlight of this ramen is the perfect blend of tonkotsu and chicken collagen soup broth served together with Kurobuta pork - braised for 5 hours before serving.

This dish is created by Chef Yasuji Morizumi, as seen above. The consummate chef is the first-ever ramen chef to receive a Michelin star. He was also crowned the 'Best Ramen Chef' by TV Champion, a famous culinary contest in Japan. 

This special dish is available for a limited time only, from 17 January - 31 March 2015.

Exclusively available at Chabuton Singapore, the specialty dish stars Kurobuta pork, which is billed as the most highly prized pork in Japan. The meat comes with small, fine streaks of fat that make each slice richly sweet, tender and succulent. It's indeed soft and rich in flavour, probably the best thing in this dish.

The thick and creamy broth of the ramen dish is a luscious blend of tonkotsu and chicken collagen. Not only it's tasty and highly nutritional as well. Accompanying ingredients include bamboo shoot, Japanese leek and soft-boiled egg.  The noodle was 'Q' and the broth is really rich in flavour but likewise it maybe a tad salty to some.

The soft-boiled egg (onsen) was definitely way better than my first visit previously. It does flow and well marinated but it sure need more work. I would ask for consistency.

Two of their best side dishes to go along, here's Ika Karaage ($5). Crispy friend squid with a tad of spiciness in the marination. It was overall good.

Another side would be Hitokuchi Gyoza ($5 for 8 pcs), these bite-sized dumplings serve as a perfect side dish to Chabuton's ramen. Taste itself was good but the filling were lacking though.

The marquee mainstays include Chabuton Tonkotsu Ramen and Shoyu Zaru ramen which start from $11.90 for regular portion. All ingredients used are either imported from Japan or sourced by companies specially appointed by the Japanese headquarters. New dish, The Kurobuta is definitely worth trying, ramen dishes at their best values.
