When I first moved to Osaka, I did a lot of walking around.  Everything was new to me then, so I just ambled around randomly discovering whatever I could.  One day I walked by a shop that sold a number of curry dishes, including curry udon and duck curry tsukemen, and I knew I had to go there.

I forgot about it for a while, and then a few weeks ago, while looking for a bar in the same area, stumbled across this shop.  I tried to go here one day after work, but it was closed for some reason.  I double checked the hours, and tried again, this time with success.

Miyagimiya is a veritable curry paradise, with curry udon to curry tsukemen to curry nabe.  I want to try all of them, but this time I stuck with the duck curry tsukemen.  Maybe next time I'll bring a couple people for a curry feast.

The Bowl
The broth was a thin and light curry, with a taste that reminded me of fried onions.  It was very reminiscent to a similar bowl at Tsuboya, but with less fishy taste.  The noodles were very long and springy, different from most noodles I've had with ramen or tsukemen.  The duck was chewy, but not all that flavorful, and the egg was standard.  There were also onions and some kind of citrus fruit in the broth.  In the end I asked for the wari-soup, which mostly watered down the already-light broth, but had a bit of saltiness to it too.

Would I Go Again?
The tsukemen wasn't amazing, but I'm curious about the curry nabe.

Should You Go?
Don't go for the tsukemen.  The other dishes looked pretty good, though.
