Yosuko Ramen

I wasn't too hungry and didn't feel like going far, so I decided to hit up a light place near work in Umeda. Ramen Walker came to the rescue and brought me to Yosuko.  Yosuko didn't look fancy on the outside, and on the inside it resembled a hole-in-the-wall restaurant that you might find in the east coast of the US. Metal counters, menu on the wall only, and old ladies rushing to get everyone who was finished eating out.  It kind of felt like home.

Ōsaka-fu, Ōsaka-shi, Kita-ku, Kakudachō, 7−17
Yosuko is in an alleyway just south of HEP5.

The Bowl
I asked for a light bowl, and that is what I got.  The soup was a clear shio that tasted a lot like a thin chicken soup.  The noodles were thin and very soft.  The chashu came in slices that were not nearly as fatty as a lot of restaurants.  On the side was a container full of fried onions, which really flavored up the soup if you want to add something on top of the shio broth.

Would I Go Again?
It was easy to drink, which is what I wanted.  This is not the kind of place I'll come often, but if I want something cheap and I'm in the area, I could see stopping by.

Should You Go?
This is a good place to go if you're in Umeda and want ramen, but aren't ready to handle an oily bowl of something kotteri.  It's really cheap, too.
