The Michelin-lauded ramen hotspot opens in central Bangkok.
Located at Chit Lom’s Mercury Ville community mall, Tonchin comes to Bangkok by way of Japan, Shanghai, Taiwan, and New York, where it earned Bib Gourmand status from the Michelin guide in 2019. The restaurant serves pocket-friendly, Tokyo-style ramen that should please even the fussiest connoisseurs. Warm up with the classic Tokyo tonkatsu ramen (B190), served with homemade noodles, tonkotsu broth, roasted pork belly, egg, bamboo shoot, and seaweed, or the spicy tan tan ramen (B250), a heady mix of bonito, asari clams, kombu, minced pork, chilies, spicy oil, and sansho pepper in a rich chicken broth. Looking for snacks? Try the pork belly-packed chashu don (B140) or pan-fried gyoza (B100).
