FIRST MICHELIN STAR RAMEN IN JAPAN – TSUTA & HEDGEHOG CAFE | JAPAN VLOG #7
Hey guys We’re standing outside Tsuta Which is the first Michelin Starred Ramen Restaurant in the world (I meant Japan) This was a must go-to on our itinerary We even woke up 5am in the morning to get here at 7 to grab our tickets So with the ticketing system here at Tsuta You get here you grab the tickets which are allocated a time So if you’re here first thing in the morning you actually pick the time you want to come back for the ramen We chose 1 o’clock When you pick up your tickets you actually have to put down a deposit of 1000 yen That’s just so that they know you’re gonna come back and if you don’t come back that 1000 yen is actually refundable Which is pretty good So then you don’t have to wait in line all day and you know exactly when to come back We actually have waited over 5 hours for a meal in Japan before You can Watch it up here Oh yeh! I remember we waited 5 hours for for sushi Not doing that again Yeh, so this system here is excellent I think everyone should just adopt it It’s pretty cool So it’s nearly 1 o’clock Come with us and we’re going to have the first Michelin Star Ramen Let’s go So Tsuta only serves around 70 bowls apparently and they open between 11am to 4 pm or when they sell out of ramen Tsuta is actually really close to the station So you can get here in about 2 minute walk from Sugamo Station on the JR line We just got some information Even though we have tickets you still have to line up We just got some information before we enter the restaurant Some things you should know before coming here Please line up in a single line Don’t spread your legs What do you mean ‘don’t spread your legs’? Oh, I mean like when you’re sitting down Apparently inside is really small They want you to Y’know not take up so much space If you have a big carry bag Space is limited for your bag Don’t take pictures of the kitchen Try not to block any entrances or Emergency exits So I’m guessing it’s pretty tiny We’re going in! Everyone is eating very quietly in here Hey guys so we just had a fantastic lunch at Tsuta Those noodles were Bombbbbbbbbbbbbbb! So good! Definitely If you’re in Tokyo make some time and go there So just one day Wake up early, get your tickets and don’t miss out because it’s one helluva bowl of ramen Yummy Yummy! Yummy! Right now we’re on our way to Rikugi-en Park to see more Autumn leaves This is one of the top places to see autumn leaves apparently it’s Really beautiful Only about a 5 min walk from Tsuta as well So not that far from the station Ri-ku Gi-en There’s this one bridge in the park and we’ve got to line up to get past it We’re in Roppongi!
