I had some unusual post-lunch weekend plans in Umeda, but not a lot of time. Luckily, as it has in the past, the Osaka Ekimae buildings were there to help me. A tomato ramen shop I hadn't had a chance to visit in building 3 closed recently, but in its place sprouted Yu, a shrimp ramen shop. Shrimp was assumed, the choice was between shio, shoyu, and miso. On most days I would have gone miso without a thought, but I didn't want too heavy of a meal so opted for the shio.


The Bowl
The soup was centered around its simple shio broth, filled with shrimpy flavor. A broth like this might not be anything notable at another shop, but the shrimp mixed in seeped into the rough yellow noodles, and the toppings alike. The noodles were good like that, but unfortunately the egg was a bit overcooked, and the thin slices of chicken chashu were lackluster. It was a solid effort, but didn't hit the highs of other shrimpy bowls I've had.


Would I Go Again?
Probably not.


Should You Go?
If you like shrimp, this is a place worth stopping by.
