Could there be a better Christmas gift than one bowl of noodles drenched in a rich broth, drizzled with flavorings, fat, and hot oil, and stapled with a stamp of a Michelin star?

Yes—a whole year’s supply.

Tsuta, the world’s first Michelin‑starred ramen restaurant, is opening in Manila and is giving away prizes to the first 100 in line.

The lucky 100 who get to try the award‑winning ramen in Bonifacio High Street on December 16 will receive a one‑year supply of Tsuta ramen, served as one hot, delicious bowl of ramen per week, of their choice of specialty shoyu (soy‑based sauce), shio (salt‑based sauce), or miso soba.

Diners 11 to 30 get six months’ worth, while numbers 31‑50 will enjoy free ramen once per week for 3 whole months.


Meanwhile, the succeeding 50 people in line will each get a voucher for one free bowl of signature Tsuta ramen valid for claiming anytime within one year. Prizes are non‑transferable and not convertible to cash.

One more thing: lucky ramen lovers may meet Tsuta’s founder and executive chef Onishi Yuki who trained in his father’s ramen restaurant before opening his own shop in Tokyo in 2012. Tsuta is the world’s first ramen shop to have a Michelin star for 2016, 2017, and 2018. It was brought here by FOODEE Global Concepts, the same group behind Todd English and Tim Ho Wan Philippines.

Don’t miss this chance and line up as early as you can at the UG/F C3 Bonifacio High Street Central, 7th Ave. corner 30th Street. Queue will be accommodated as early as 6 a.m., and numbers will be issued to the first 100 in line. The store officially opens to the public at 11:30 a.m.
