MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Chef Myo Htun, who hails from Myanmar, has done time refining his culinary skills. The result? This vibrant Shaw operation, known for its conversation-worthy cocktails and excellent cuisine. Granted, while ramen may be all the rage in town, only a few rise to the level of this delicious hot spot. Not only are this chef's versions myriad, his approach is personal and especially slurpable.

Diners may opt for the hot or cold ramen. The former (Chaplin A.S.S.) arrives with gloriously tender slabs of chicken and a sweltering broth; while the latter, with springy noodles, zesty ginger, and cool cucumber, is equally gratifying. Bites, like gyoza, shumai, and chap ban ji, are as intrinsic to this kitchen as the chocolate lava cake with cognac and ice cream. .
