Some netizens were unimpressed.

So, it was announced that the world’s only Michelin-starred ramen shop will be opening its first overseas outlet in sunny Singapore.

Japanese Soba Noodles Tsuta, opened by Japanese Yuki Onishi in Tokyo, will be opening the outlet in Pacific Plaza in October 2016.


Onishi’s ramen retail for about ‎¥1,000 to ‎¥1,500 (S$13 to S$20) a bowl in Japan.

However, some netizens were unenthusiastic about its opening in Singapore.

Main reason?

The ramen shop’s local partners, who are bringing this ramen in, are the same people who brought Hong Kong Michelin-starred dim sum chain Tim Ho Wan into Singapore. They are also the ones who will be bringing in Michelin-starred Kam’s Roast Goose as well.

And we all know how Tim Ho Wan Singapore’s quality turned out – not too bad, but far cry from its counterpart in Hong Kong.


Another potential reason to grouse?


Possible uniquely Singapore prices.


But then again, I’m sure the queue will still be long because…


That is all,

The end.
