Dotonbori King-emon道頓堀 金久右衛門


This is a popular Ramen shop specializing in soy based ramen which is located roughly a five-minute walk away from Kintetsu Namba Station. This restaurant has appeared in the media many times, and indeed has been awarded first place as Tabelog Osaka’s best ramen shop for three year in a row. Business hours are from 11 p.m. until 8 a.m. in the morning, and it is open 24 hours a day on Friday to Sunday and the day before a national holiday so many people also frequent it such as those returning home after a long drinking party. There is an extensive menu from light taste to a strong taste—the “Osaka Black” ramen with its dark soy sauce base of black soup and the “Naniwa Black” ramen which utilizes the flavors of seafood in the Osaka black stock.

          While Osaka prefecture is the country's second smallest prefecture, its capital, Osaka City, is the country’s third-largest and arguably one of the most popular in the Kansai region thanks to its vibrant nightlife, the Osaka people’s openness, and its much-loved cuisine, which has earned it the nickname “the nation’s kitchen."
