The Kurobuta at Chabuton 313@Somerset (Media Tasting)

Believe it or not, but even after all that hype about Chabuton, this is my first visit there. I was glad to be able to finally try the famous ramen by the world’s first Michelin-starred ramen Chef Yasuji Morizumi.

The highlight of our visit was The Kurobuta ($18.90), which is available for a limited time only, from now till 31 March 2015.

While waiting for our ramen to be served, we tried the Hitokuchi Gyoza (8 pieces for $5) and Ika Karaage ($5). Both appetisers were rather oily. Mum, who was my plus one for the evening, preferred the fried squid at Sushi Tei.

And now for the main reason for our visit to Chabuton… The Kurobuta!

The ramen comes with two layers of soup. Their signature tonkotsu soup at the bottom and chicken collagen soup on the top. It is recommended not to stir the soup and drink the chicken collagen soup first. Besides, there is no need for stirring because as you eat your noodles, the soup will be mixed gradually.

The ramen is also served with a slice of Kurobuta pork, which is beautifully marbled and very tender. The noodles were too much for us, but we made sure we finished the soup!
