    I like the choice given between thick or thin noodles. One piece of pork, not too flavourable but egg was awesome. The Osaka black was award winning but a bit too strong for me with a bitter...

    まだインターネットで情報収集が困難な頃は、大阪を代表するラーメン店として雑誌などでももてはやされたものだが、それも昔からのこと。 ラーメン店のレベルの底上げと共にこちらもカドヤ食堂などと共に客足は減る一方。 当時は強気な姿勢だったスタッフもかげを潜め残念。量が少ないのは相変わらずだが。
