When I was visiting Denden Town with my brother, I noticed there was a ramen shop I didn't recognize before. A Yokohama-style iekei ramen shop; a true rarity in Kansai. I had only ever been to one before, and it had left something to be desired. What would iekei chain Konshinya bring to the table?


Ōsaka-fu, Ōsaka-shi, Naniwa-ku, Nanbanaka, 2丁目4−3

The Bowl
It was a solid but not amazing iekei bowl. Rich, shoyu tonkotsu broth, but not overwhelmingly heavy like some of the bowls I'd had in Tokyo. The noodles were short and firm, and were accompanied by seaweed, chashu, greens, and something that looked like quail eggs.


Would I Go Again?
If I want to show a friend in Kansai iekei, this is where I'll take them.


Should You Go?
If you haven't had iekei, give it a try.
