Tanimachi yon-chome Mannen Curry

Exquisite curry with a tonkotsu base brougth to you by a popular ramen shop!

Now open: a restaurant specializing in curry, brought to you by a popular ramen shop

For lunch today I went to Mannen Curry, a restaurant specializing in curry, which is located in Tanimachi yon-chome.

A curry restaurant produced by Mannen—the popular ramen shop that has branches in Umeda, Shinsaibashi, and Senrioka—has opened, and so I wasted no time in going to visit!

Mannen serves mainly tonkotsu (pork bone broth) ramen.
In this restaurant, you can enjoy curry & rice, or curry tsukemen noodles, both made with Mannen’s “tonkotsu soup” base!

For curry & rice, there is the basic Plain Curry (¥700), which can be enjoyed with a variety of toppings.
Since I was making a visit especially, I decided to try the Full Toppings Mannen Tonkotsu Curry (¥1250), which comes with all of the toppings. This is a super fancy curry, topped with choice pork, spinach, cheese, and egg!

First, I’ll enjoy the curry with the melted cheese…

(゜Д゜)Yummy!(゜Д゜)Yummy!

It tastes grrrrrrrrrreat!!
After the wonderfully fruity sweetness and the deep umami flavor of the tonkotsu, a rather stimulating spiciness created quite a taste sensation!
The balance of all the flavors is superb!

This is a curry in the western style that Osaka people love. Try it once and you’re definitely going to love it and want to eat it again!

The restaurant is located in Tanimachi yon-chome, an area in Osaka that’s famous for its super curry wars.
Opening especially in this location means that the store had quite a bit of confidence in the flavors it could produce!
I visited just when the restaurant opened, but customers arrived one after the other, and before I knew it, the restaurant was full and there was a line of people waiting outside!
Do go to try this delicious curry made with a tonkotsu base!
