My trip to Fukuoka finally came to a close and I was back in Osaka. I had been dragging my brother around to so many wacky and weird shops that we hadn't even gotten around to having a classic shoyu bowl. After going back and forth trying to decide where best to take him, I decided to go to one of my old favorites Rakunijin and follow it up with a beer at the local Beer Belly. I had been here before, so I decided to try the spicy chuka soba instead of the standard.

Ōsaka-fu, Ōsaka-shi, Kita-ku, Naniwachō, 4−22

The Bowl
Just like the standard shoyu bowl, the spicy one was light, fishy, and delicious. There was just a bit of kick to this broth, which kept it from overwhelming the shoyu taste. The noodles were great just like lasts time, and the rest of the toppings were solid too. Overall it wasn't as good as their main bowl, but I would easily go to a shop that only had this on their menu.

Would I Go Again?
Yeah, probably.

Should You Go?
Yes you should.
