Finally, the day has come for me to try Kinryu. One of the most famous shops in Osaka, if not the most famous, it had been on my must-visit list since I arrived in town. Following in my New Year's resolution, I hit Kamukura and earlier, so now it was finally time to visit Kinryu. To make it a true visit, it had to be early in the morning, after a long night of drinking.


The Bowl
I came in worrying that this would be a disgusting bowl, but in the end it was...bland. Neither the oily broth nor the middling noodles had any flavor, let alone anything unique. At Kinryu, they leave out bowls of kimchi and garlic chives for you to put in your bowl, and doing that added some flavor, but not much. I can see why this is a shop people go to drunk and craving carbohydrates, but not a shop I would go expecting flavor.


Would I Go Again?


Should You Go?
If you don't need flavor, then it's fine, otherwise stick to one of the other shops in the area.
