Chabuton Launches Kurobuta Premium Tonkotsu Ramen + Voucher GIVEAWAY!

It was last September when I went to Chabuton's first Singapore outlet at 313@Somerset for a bowl of their Tonkotsu Ramen, but in just 5 months, its popularity extended to another two new outlets at Tampines 1 and Star Vista!

What lured me back to Chabuton this time was their Premium Tonkotsu Ramen ~ The Kurobuta! Wow an exclusive ramen dish starring highly-prized pork in Japan, specially created by Chef Yasuji Morizumi, the first-ever ramen chef to receive a Michelin star and was crowned "King of Ramen" by Tokyo's TV Champion. Who can resist? Certainly not me!

Each bowl of Kurobuta Premium Tonkotsu Ramen ($18.90) is said to contain a luscious blend of tonkotsu (pork bone) and chicken collagen broth which is not just great tasting, but highly nutritional as well. After a sampling, I was highly convinced of its quality. I had a spoonful, and another, and another, and continued till the flavorful and creamy soup is finished to its last drop.

But I couldn't finish the noodles, as the portion was decidedly hearty and there was a slight alkaline aftertaste which failed to escape my fastidious tastebud. Texture wise, it was well-cooked and retained a springy bite even after going through my excessive photo-taking. Still passed.

The ramen is also accompanied by a medley of toppings: Kurobuta Minced Pork, Bamboo Shoot, Japanese Leek and Soft-boiled Egg, highlight of which was undoubtedly the slice of Kurobuta Pork Belly.

Braised to ooh so tender perfection, the well-marbled meat melted my heart with its fatty succulence and filled my mouth with edible happiness. I really wish the serving was more generous. Size matters.

Overall it was a tasty bowl of ramen which I would sacrifice my waistline for. Eat first, exercise later (ie if I ever get round to it lol)! Now now, should I be glad or sad that it's only available for a limited period from 17 January to 31 March?

The Kurobuta Premium Tonkotsu Ramen is available for a limited time only from 17 January to 31 March 2015.
