Some shops change owners quickly in Osaka, and some shops change so often that you can't recommend them to someone before they are gone. Ide is the shop in Amemura that replaced late night shio shop Kuramitsu. At the time of writing, Ide is already gone, however, and has been replaced by a new tonkotsu shop.

Ide is a branch of a tsukemen shop located in Kitahama, associated with Menya Teru and Tsukemen Senmonten Matsuura. Sounds like a thick gyokai tonkotsu tsukemen, which is what I ordered.



The Bowl
This was a thick and sweet bowl of tsukemen; the broth and noodles were both super thick, to a degree I don't usually see outside of Tokyo. It was a welcome change from some of the thinner tsukemen often found in Osaka, and if there was some spice added it would have resembled my beloved Enji from Tokyo, or Nagoya's Yamasho. Hidden below the surface of the soup were chewy chunks of oily chashu, and equally thick blocks of menma. A shop this good and filling shouldn't be open in the stay-up-late drunk ramen part of Amemura...which is maybe why it no longer is.


Would I Go Again?
I would like to, but it no longer exists. I did go to the main shop, though.


Should You Go?
It no longer exists, so you'll have to stick with Suzume.
