Recently, a couple of chefs from Osaka sardine ramen chain Tamagoro opened up shops in the illustrious if slightly hidden Osaka Ekimae buildings. I reviewed one of them, Rokubei not long ago, and finally I had a chance to go to its cousin Uonosuke. Not straying too far away from its ancestor Tamagoro, Uonusuke's recommended ramen is the super sardine ramen, which is what I ordered.


The Bowl
Just like Rokubei laid on the bonito heavily, Uonusuke was all about the sardine. The broth was clear and drinkable, and the fish taste was strong. The noodles were curly and uneven, like handmade ones, and were of the right quality to match the soup. Even the toppings, which included a large slice of chashu, super-thick menma, and a wonton skin had the powerful taste of sardines to them.


Would I Go Again?
Maybe, it was pretty good.


Should You Go?
If you're a fan of fishy ramen, this is your place.
