Chabuton originated from Japan and has been a hit in Thailand. It finally opened the first outlet in Singapore. Located at basement of 313 Somerset shopping mall, I was expecting queue due to it’s popularity in Thailand and Japan. Surprisingly, there isn’t a queue on weekdays after work.
Chabuton Tonkotsu Ramen @S$11.90 (L) topped with char siew and japanese leek.I personally felt the pork bone soup broth is lighter.Customers can customize to own liking for noodles texture, oil level and also saltiness level.
Chabuton Shoyu Ramen @S$11.90(L) served in shoyu style ramen in japanese soy sauce soup topped with char siew and japanese leek. The oil and saltiness level of the soup cannot be customized as the staff explained that the soy sauce soup is standardized. The soup taste is light to my liking.
We also ordered Hitokuchi Gyoza @S$5.00 that comes in 8 pieces. The pan-fried dumplings are quite oily on the surface and plates served are oily as well. Lack of fillings as I can’t get enough of it. Nevertheless, the portion served with the price offered is quite attractive.
Overall the service staffs are polite and friendly.Total Bill was S$36.25 which inclusive of 2 hot green tea (S$1.00/per serving) , 10% service charge and 7% GST.Payment to be made at the cash counter upon finishing the meal.
