Hi,I’m Keiko from Osaka!
Japanese ramen restaurants are expanding overseas rapidly.
Soy sauce taste ramen is the most popular ramen seasoning for Japanese. But it seems Tonkotsu(Pork bone ) taste ramen is the best ramen seasoning for foreiners.
I am Japaese but I find Tonkotsu ramen the best! I like the rich and creamy Tonkotsu ramen Broth.
I would like to introduce you top 5 best ramen restaurants(Tonkotsu broth) in Osaka.
Local tells Top 5 best ramen restaurants in Osaka!
Ippudo ramen is very poplar with foreigners. Some restaurants expanded to overseas.
It has two unique tonkotsu broths “red” and “white”. Red added Miso and flavor oil to Tonkotsu soup. I prefer white to red.

2.Menya Saisai/麺屋彩々 昭和町本店Menya saisai is loceted 1 minute walk from Subway Showacho station.
My friend told me that Menya Saisai is one of the best ramen restaurant in Osaka,then I went there to try it.
There was a long queue in front of the restaurant at 1:30 p.m. and I had to wait about 20 minutes.
I ordered white chicken shio ramen（白鶏塩ラーメン) for 780 yen.
I ate the ramen and it was AMAZING.
The noodle, broth,ingredients, Everything was perfect.
There is a crispy deep fried chicken karaage,and it goes well with their ramen broth.
It was a delicious surprise,I didn’t expect such a delicious ramen exist near Showacho station.
It’s a pity that most of the customers are all locals,I hope more foreign tourists get to know this restaurant.
The menu is available only in Japanese, so you can ask the staff for a help.
I highly recommend you to try the ramen here if you’re a ramen lover!
