Makenki Ramen

It was finally starting to get warm in Osaka, which encouraged me all the more to take random walks.  Today's was to Makenki Ramen, a shop I found in last year's Ramen Walker that has a number of different styles, but most notably shoyu tonkotsu.  I've really enjoyed some of the other shoyu tonkotsu shops I've been to before, so I was excited to give Makenki a try.

Ōsaka-fu, Ōsaka-shi, Nishi-ku, Itachibori, 3丁目7−13
Makenki is south of Awaza Station, on the east side of Amida-ike Suji.

The Bowl
The broth was thin and very oily, reminding me a little bit of the broth at some chains I've been to.  It was salty and there was a roasty flavor, similar to roasted garlic or ma-yu.  The noodles were medium-thin and fairly firm.  There was an egg, menma, onions, and bean sprouts, but what really stood out was the chashu that was tender and tasted like Chinese barbecue pork.

Would I Go Again?
I wasn't blown away; I won't be back.

Should You Go?
The chashu was good and interesting, but everything else was mediocre.  Skip this one.
