Our Story

Our name ‘Tampopo’ (a Japanese girl’s name meaning ‘dandelion’) is also the title of a Japanese film, which chronicles a woman’s search for the perfect bowl of noodles; a quest we recreate at Tampopo today.

We’ve travelled all over East Asia to bring back our favourite dishes for you to enjoy. So sit and savour the aromas and flavours from the bustling street markets of Bangkok, the hawker stalls of Singapore and the noodle vendors of Tokyo.
