Dotonbori Ramen Festa (Menya Taku)

Dotonbori Ramen Festa! Ramen events are not uncommon, and show up from time to time around Kansai. However, they're usually far away, and over a short period of time like a weekend. This lucky time, though, there was a two week event right on Dotonbori! With only six shops over two weeks, I aimed to hit all of them. My first was the Tokyo shop that was only going to be around for the first week, Sora no Iro...


...but it was sold out. In that case, I went to the other shop that was only open for the first week, one of my local favorites Menya Taku. I was that confident I would be able to hit the other four.


The Bowl
The bowl served at the festa was not the tonkotsu gyokai from the flagship, but the chicken gyokai from Men Life Taku. As always, it was a rich soup with a frothy touch, and enough seafood to cut the thickness. It wasn't helped by the fact that it was the middle of winter and served in a foam bowl, but it was still a great introduction to the festa.
