Ex-Kilo Kitchen Head Chef, 27, Sells Tasty Handmade Duck Ramen From HDB Flat

The owner of home-based biz Soba25 has helmed kitchens at Kilo Kitchen and Raw Kitchen Bar. He now offers a unique take on fusion duck ramen via DIY noodle kits.

Ex-Kilo Kitchen Head Chef, 27, Sells Tasty Handmade Duck Ramen From HDB Flat

Despite building an impressive resume as head chef at buzzy, casual restaurants like Lola’s Cafe, Kilo Kitchen and most recently, Raw Kitchen Bar, Hubert Arnold, 27, had no qualms leaving his culinary career behind to start his home-based artisanal noodle kit biz, Soba25. “I was working about 12 hours a day with quite a number of responsibilities, including running operations, creating recipes, hiring and training staff and it was a heavy toll,” says the Eurasian chef. He has since returned to a different, less demanding full-time role and runs his HBB on weekends, but more on that later. 

Launched in February, Soba25 offers handmade noodles in soup and dry options with interesting ingredients like sous vide duck chashu. Note that the noodles are not your typical soba, which is made from buckwheat flour. Instead, Hubert’s version is a fusion take on whole wheat ramen.

All kits come with pre-packaged ingredients and detailed cooking instructions, and can last for up to three days. Everything is made from scratch from Hubert’s five-room flat in Jurong East  — located on the 25th storey, hence Soba25's name.
