ONE STAR RAMEN
Tokyo’s Tsuta restaurant has become the first ramen restaurant to win a Michelin star.
This is not your college dorm room’s ramen.
Tsuta, a ramen shop in Tokyo, has become the first ramen restaurant ever to be awarded a Michelin star, the holy grail of food awards. In particular, Michelin awarded Tsuta for its flavorful broths, including porcini mushroom and rosemary pork. But the bowl doesn’t come with a typical Michelin star price tag — it’s $7-$10 per bowl, so cheap even a college student could afford it.
Plane tickets to Tokyo might be a bit pricier, but we’re thinking it’s worth it. Just look at that ramen makes us hungry.
Open 11 am – 4 pm. 1-14-1 Sugamo, Toshima-ku, Tokyo.
