Kappa Ramen

I do my best to do a little bit of research before deciding on a place to go to.  Unfortunately, sometimes I'm not prepared.  I was out drinking with friends, having made the smart move of not eating dinner.  Late at night we wandered Minami, looking for something to eat.  After a brief search of the shops that were still open, we chose Kappa Ramen.

Ōsaka-fu Ōsaka-shi Chūō-ku Sennichimae 1丁目9−12
Kappa Ramen is on the north side of Sennichimae Dori, right by the Shinsaibashi arcade.

The Bowl
The broth was an oily, fatty tonkotsu.  I don't mind a fatty bowl of tonkotsu, but this was a lot of fat for a pretty mediocre bowl.  If you look at the picture closely, you can see the small chunks of fat floating in the soup.  This was the kind of bowl I would expect to get if I walked into a completely random ramen shop; not very good, but edible, and decent while drunk.

Would I Go Again?
They can't all be winners.  Even if I was hankering for ramen again late at night in Minami, I'd pick one of the many other options.

Should You Go?
No reason to hit this one up.
