Finally, hanami season! The cherry blossoms were blooming, and I was off to visit Osaka Castle Park to drink in the sun and stare at flowers. The snacks people usually bring to those gatherings was not enough, though, so I stopped at Nakamuraya in Senba on the way. Nakamuraya is a Gifu-based set of ramen shops, known for their sweet and sour tsukemen.


Ōsaka-fu, Ōsaka-shi, Chūō-ku, Bakurōmachi, 2丁目6−13

The Bowl
The soup was light, sweet, sour, and even a little spicy. It was different from other gyokai tonkotsu I've had before, and tasted good with the extra-long, chewy noodles. All of the toppings tasted good in the sweet and sour soup too; the menma, egg, and melty chashu.


Would I Go Again?
It was different, and good. Maybe I'll bring a friend there.


Should You Go?
If you're in Senba, it's the place to go.
