Chabuton @ 313 Somerset

A ramen shop by "King of Ramen" and Michelin-starred Chef Yasuji Morizumi. Chabuton has been much blogged about and was excited that it was scheduled as our stop #2 of the 313 Somerset Food Trail 2015.  The place was quiet but I think that's because no one really eats ramen at 1130am, or do they? Well, at least this group of foodies, did!


Was served with their bestseller ramen, the Chabuton Tonkotsu Ramen. Besides that, also tried Kara Kara Miso Ramen and Shoyu Zaru Ramen. Glad to report that all ramen (soups) here are not too strongly flavoured and that really meant, it was not too salty for local tastebuds. Pleasant and should be able to satiate when that craving for ramen strikes.

As usual, one could opt to add a lava egg to the ramen.

But the one that stood out? Was the simple Shoyu Zaru Ramen. The noodle didn't look exciting but it was so good to eat. It was pleasantly chewy and springy and tasted wonderful with the sauce. Add some hot tonkotsu broth to the sauce at the end (after all the non-stop dip and slurp) to enjoy a drinkable soup.

Also sampled some of its fried items. The Hitokuchi Gyoza was really a flat looking one-bite gyoza. The Aka Ebi Mentai was tasty and ika karaage was good as a snack, with beer. But beer in the morning? Unlikely. Will settle for green tea.
