After accidentally getting my coworker obsessed with Teru, I figured I had to show him the other ramen shops in the area.  I had been to Takezawa before, months ago, but not since I started this blog.  We headed over there and found out that it was actually about to close.  According to one of the employees, the store was going to relocate to China!  There was only a week and a half or so left until it was gone for good, so we were pretty lucky.  Takezawa specialized in light shoyu ramen, so I went with that.

Ōsaka-fu, Ōsaka-shi, Kita-ku, Nakatsu, 1丁目10−13

The Bowl
The broth was clear and much lighter than most shoyu ramen that I've had.  If I didn't know any better I would have thought it was shio just looking at it.  It wasn't too salty and was very refreshing.  The noodles were thin and light too, which  worked well.  The egg was creamy and quite good, while the kakuni was decent but nothing special.

Would I Go Again?
I went back one last time before it closed, to try one of their other special ramens, and I would have gone back on occasion if Takezawa hadn't closed.

Should You Go?
Takezawa is already closed at time of writing; maybe you can go find it in China?
