Bakkoshi

A while back I visited Bokkoshi when it opened in Namba, a delicious almost pasta-like chicken shop. The original shop it's based on, though, is Bakkoshi, a tonkotsu shop in Juso.

だいぶ前に、なんばでできた「ぼっこ志」の鶏白湯専門店に行ってきました。でも、本店は本当に十三にある「ぼっこ志」とんこつ専門店です。


The Bowl
The first experience I had in tasting the bowl was the milkiness of the white broth, along with the thin oil coating it. The flavoring itself was standard tonkotsu, and inside were Hakata-style thin, al dente noodles. The chashu was salty and strong; good in small quantity but I would have had trouble with any more. Overall this was a creamy take on run-of-the-mill tonkotsu.

最初の一口の体験でミルク的な真っ白のスープと薄めの油の食感がしました。味自体は標準のとんこつで、中には硬めの博多風麺が入っていました。チャーシューは濃くて辛くて、入った少量がちょうどよかったです。全体的に、よく見るとんこつの若干クリーミー系でした。

Would I Go Again?
It wasn't bad, but I'm not about to make a trip to Juso for it.

おいしかったですけど、十三までまた行かないかな。

Should You Go?
I would aim for Bokkoshi or newer shop Bukkoshi before trekking out to Bakkoshi.

ばっこ志に行くより、先にぼっこ志かぶっこ志に行くのをお勧めします
