    Osaka Osakashi Chuou-ku Souemonchou 7-18
    The Dotonbori Annex of the famous tonkotsu (pork bone) ramen restaurant Ichiran. The retro Showa fashioned store is adorned with tables where you can enjoy a conversation with friends or family over a bowl of ramen. Their tonkotsu broth is a closely guarded secret refined over many years. Come taste the unique flavor of their noodles paired with a secret blend of chili pepper in their tonkotsu ramen. Ichiran's famous solo counter spaces are also available for the single customer.

    Personal preference is to choose thicker broth and more garlic. Had ramen with better umami in other restaurants. Ichiran is convenient in a sense that it is located within a tourist district, if...
