New Bites at Tsuta

Christmas is fast approaching and its cool night breeze never fails to make me crave for a hot bowl of soup or ramen. And I sure am glad that Tsuta was our last stop for our FOODEE Crawl.

Hello again, Tsuta.
Tsuta has been one of the most talked about ramen joints since it opened last December. It was hard not to be curious about this place given it is the first ever ramen shop to earn a prestigious Michelin star. 
Its light broth made with natural ingredients have received both praise and disappointment from the market. I loved it though as I'm not a fan of strong flavors. But for those who do, Tsuta developed Sang La Tan Tan Soba which is a rich blend of different flavors influenced by our very own local dishes. 
For this visit, we sampled Tsuta's newest creation, Teriyaki Chicken Soba (PHP390). Available in regular and spicy, I went with regular and added tamago for that creamier slurp. 
While waiting for our bowls, we munched on some beautifully seasoned Edamame (PHP90). We were also served with plates of Gyoza (PHP220) and Karaage (PHP220).
I skipped the Japanese dumpling and tried Karaage instead. And it was light, crisp and would delight any fried chicken lover. I also loved it drizzled with calamansi juice for that nice zest and contrast. 
Soon, our Teriyaki Chicken Soba bowls were served.
Its broth is still lighter compared to its competitors but I found it richer than the signature Shoyu. 
The sweet and savory chicken teriyaki made the dish a lot more savory. Its dashi (broth) was cooked for 5 hours for that beautiful bold flavor and the Shoyu tare makes it distinctly Tsuta. The sweet corn, button mushroom and baby leaves gave it more complex texture and lovely sweet  and earthy flavors.
We capped our meal with Matcha Bavaro (PHP90), a green tea pudding topped with whipped cream and azuki beans. Its delicate flavor made it the perfect dish to end our meal and FOODEE Crawl. 
Tsuta is located at Upper Ground Floor, Bonifacio High Street Central, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City.
