Second Tsuta diner to open in Harbour City
A second branch of Tokyo restaurant Tsuta is about to open in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.
Two years ago Tsuta became the first ramen restaurant in the world to be awarded a Michelin Star. Hong Kong’s first branch opened at Causeway Bay’s V-Point in May.
Famed for its MSG-free truffled ramen, the Causeway Bay restaurant in its first weeks drew queues, but shorter than the five-hour waits at the flagship branch in Japan, reports Time Out Hong Kong.
Only 400 bowls are made each day, using a stock (dashi) made with whole chickens, fresh clams and dried fish, all simmered for nine hours before a blend of three different soy sauces and a specially made truffle sauce and oil are added.
Opening on Sunday, the Harbour City branch will be offering an exclusive miso soba, using Hatcho miso from Japan plus ingredients including porcini mushroom oil and hot sauce.
