A while ago, a few shops in Namba and Nipponbashi banded together to start a stamp rally. The idea behind this stamp rally was that each shop would do a bowl similar to the ramen another shop serves. Though it was my first trip to Seimenya, I decided to try their Joroku-inspired shoyu.


The Bowl
The bowl was a solid rendition of Takaida-style shoyu: dark and peppery, and a little less salty and therefore more drinkable than the original. The broth itself had a kind of hoisin-like taste, similar to other classic chuka soba. The noodles were fat and hard. They were good, and I think they could have even afforded to be a little thicker, given the saltiness of the soup.


Would I Go Again?
Yes, the ramen was good and I was curious to try their specialty too.


Should You Go?
Unfortunately they don't serve this dish any more, but their other bowls looked good.



Not bad.
