Menya Taku

A rainy day is no excuse not to trek out for ramen.  If anything, it's more of a reason to go.  I did some research and picked a place in Horie.  When I got there, I realized that it looked familiar.  Very familiar.  I wasn't 100% sure, but it really looked like the spitting image of Men Life Taku, where I went shortly before I left for the holidays.  I came all this way, so I stepped inside and ordered a bowl of ramen.

Ōsaka-fu, Ōsaka-shi, Nishi-ku, Kitahorie, 3丁目5−2
Menya Taku is south of Nagahori Dori in between Nishinagahori Station and Yotsubashi Station.

The Bowl
If I have to end up at a branch of a shop I've been to without meaning to, I'm glad it's at least one I love.  Once again the soup was not that thick, but very rich with gyokai and chicken flavors.  Good chashu, medium sized noodles, and thin, crunchy menma.  Last time I wasn't in love with the eggs, but I liked them a lot better this time for whatever reason.

Would I Go Again?
I did, and I still would.

Should You Go?
Yes, to either here or the Namba branch.  Both are a little out of the way, but worth making it out to.
