Kadoya Shokudo

Kadoya Shokudo is one of the most highly rated ramen shops in Osaka.  After going to Yashichi on Friday, I grew a desire to hit up a bunch of the top shops from ramendb.  It was a rainy Saturday, but I was not to be stopped.  My friend and I met up in Namba and braved the weather all the way to the (relatively) far-off Nishi-ku.

Kadoya is known for their shoyu ramen, which is what I ordered, while my friend got a seasonal pork mazemen.

Ōsaka-fu Ōsaka-shi Nishi-ku Shinmachi 4丁目16−13
Kadoya is on the north side of Nagahori-dori way west of Shinsaibashi, close to Nishihoribashi station.

The Bowl
This was, as advertised, a very simple shoyu bowl.  Light broth, and flavorful without being too salty.  The medium, long noodles' taste reminded me of soba noodles.  The soup was also full of thick, long menma, and some standard but decent chashu.

Would I Go Again?
I get why some people love a simple soup like this, but I'm more interested in richer or more experimental ramen.  If a friend from abroad comes to down and I want to tream him to a very solid shoyu, I'll come here.

Should You Go?
If shoyu's your thing, this is a good place.  It's kind of out of the way though, unless you just came from a Buffaloes game at the Kyocera dome.
