It was a Sunday evening, and for some reason I felt like walking to Tennoji. There's a few places around there, and I picked one that looked pretty good (and happened to be open).
The place is tiny and there was just one other person in the shop: the old woman who ran it. She was very kind and after chatting with her for a little bit I ordered the Nishiki Ramen.
Ōsaka-fu, Ōsaka-shi, Abeno-ku, Abenosuji, ２丁目４−４８
The broth was a fairly standard tonkotsu. It was hot and oily, and had a bit of a roasty flavor to it, similar to ra-yu, though it wasn't spicy. The noodles were very thin and soft, and in addition to menma and onions, there was some pretty good, tender chashu.
Would I Go Again?
Nishiki wasn't super special but it was pretty solid. I'll probably go to the other shops in Tennoji first, but when I run out of those I'll come back here.
Should You Go?
If you're in Tennoji, there's a few decent places you can go. This is one of them.
