Men no Kuni

There can only be so much time between when a miso ramen shop opens in Osaka and when I visit it. This time the new shop is Men no Kuni, a second shop of the Namba miso joint. It resides in Osaka Ekimae Building #3, along with several other restaurants, ramen or otherwise. I kind of knew what I was getting into here; I ordered the recommended Hokkaido miso ramen and sat patiently in my seat.


The Bowl
This was a loud bowl of miso, salty and strong to match the greasy but pleasant vibes of the other restaurants in the basement food court. The noodles were fat and twisted; the ideal vessel for the oily soup. Fried bits of garlic sat atop like peanuts on a sundae. They provided texture to the broth. A fat piece of pork sat half-sunken, not tender but not tough either, and with just the slightest bit of sweetness.


Would I Go Again?
This was a tasty bowl of miso...but if I'm in Umeda I'll probably end up at legendary Mitsukabozu Kamoshi.

美味しい味噌ラーメンでしたけど、梅田にいたらうわさのみつか坊主 醸に行ってまうかな

Should You Go?
It's a solid shop for anyone craving miso.
