Tsuta Japanese Soba Noodles : the best instant ramen

I was in Japan for 2 weeks and have eaten bowls of ramen from different parts of Japan, that including bowls of instant ramen that are readily available at the convenience stores and supermarkets. I did not think much of this instant ramen from Tsuta, the world's first Michelin-starred ramen restaurant when I came across at 7-Eleven. I have eaten at their original outlet at Sugamo in Tokyo and also their outlet in Singapore which I felt the standard here is not on par with that in Japan. 

It consists of a piece of dehydrated chashu, preserved bamboo shoots, chopped scallions and fragrance oil.  The highlight was the lightly flavored soup, the truffle taste was mellower as compared to what they served in the restaurants. The noodles were still firm with a slight chewiness. The dehydrated chashu and the bamboo shoots were surprisingly good. 

I would not say this is as good as compared to what they served in their original shop in Sugama at Tokyo but it is kind of close. This is, in my humble opinion, the best instant ramen, in fact, much better than the instant version of Ippudo and Nakiryu that I have tried too. It was so good that I have decided to blog about it. It will be good if this can be found in Singapore too.
