Maybe my expectations were too high or I am not quite used to food like this but I didnt quite enjoy the New York deli-styled food here.
My reuben sandwich, the meat was pretty nice and tender but I didnt quite like the too tough rye nor the annoying bits of peppercorn within the sandwich.
What fared better for us was the tasty corned beef hash with a sunny side egg and a bagel. The bagel was way too dense for me though.
I very much liked the music here though haha

When I heard that Chabuton was the first ramen restaurant to be featured in the Michelin Guide, I know I had to try it. I love ramen and I have tried almost every must-try ramens in Singapore (yes I have my own personal list of top 5s like every other self-respecting ramen lover here). To me, the most important part about ramen is the broth; if the broth is good, I can forgive just about everything – even a less than runny egg. I guess thats why my favorite broth base would be tonkotsu because noting can beat a sweet creamy rich pork soup.
Moving on to Chabuton – I got their signature ramen. My first thought was “wow whats up with the overload of sesame seeds” While the avalanche of sesame seeds distracted some what the taste of the broth, it sill remained sweet, thick and creamy. Pretty decent! I even saw a group of young kids ordering bowls of rice just to eat with the broth – sign teenagers and their high metabolism rate
The rest of the ingredients were unfortunately pretty pedestrian
We ordered a side of gyozas to share, nothing much to comment about and definitely nothing compared to the ones at Gyoza-ya
