Chabuton - Ramen from The Michelin Chef

The Ramen Brand - Chabuton has been popular in Thailand and Japan, founded by Mr Yasuji Morizumi, the world's first Michelin-Starred Ramen Chef. He was also crown the King of Ramen by a TV programme in Japan. 

Has the restaurant live up to its name? Is it that good? I took a trip down to the restaurant outlet at Star Vista.

The Kara Kara Tonkusen Miso Ramen, or spicy miso ramen, was pale in colour. The broth was thick and creamy. The noodles, on the other hand, could be more al dente. There was a generous portion of sesame seeds in the broth but did not boost the taste. The tender meat was very thinly sliced and small in portion. Coupled with the less chewier noodles, the broth was less rich, leading to an ordinary dining experience. (Food rating: 2.5/5)

I ordered a plate of gyoza to go with the ramen. The gyoza came with about eight pieces of flat dumplings filled with vegetables. The taste was very ordinary but delectable. Overall, I would not recommend this. (Food rating: 2.5/5)

Amongst the Japanese Ramen Restaurants I have tried in Singapore, I still prefer ramen from Santouka Hokkaido Ramen. This restaurant was recommended by The Straits Times (Singapore's local newspaper) as the best 3 raman, but it will not be my best 3 yet.
