Gokuraku Udon TKU (極楽うどん TKU(ティーケーユー))
This is a quiet Sanuki udon noodle store, located about a minute on foot from Tamatsukuri Station on the JR Osaka Loop Line. The characteristic of the noodles is that they are very chewy hard noodles which few Osaka people were familiar with. Japanese wheat is matured for two days, so one can sense the smell of the wheat when biting into the noodles. For the soup stock, they are using natural Kombu and bonito which goes well with noodles to make a white soup and to curb the sweetness of the soup stock. Popular dishes at the restaurant include “Toriten (tempura style fried chicken) curry Udon” which is topped with three large tempura style fried chicken pieces and “MK noodles accompanied by dipping sauce” which is made using Hungarian Mangalica pork.
