Shio ramen is a rarity in Osaka. It's not my favorite kind, but a good shio can be just as good as any other style, with the nice benefit that you don't feel really bloated afterwards. One day I noticed there was a new, pretty well-located shio shop on my route back from work, so I went to check it out.

The Bowl
I ordered their recommended shrimp salt ramen. The broth was simple and light, as a standard shio tends to be, with a hint of shrimp. The noodles were bright yellow and curly, and while the chashu fell apart in my chopsticks pretty quickly, it was pretty flavorful. To top it off there was a wealth of kikurage, onions, and an okay egg.

Would I Go Again?
It was decent, but I probably won't fit it into my schedule again.

Should You Go?
It's not far and isn't bad, so if you're in the area looking for shio, it's a good stop.
