“JUN Otani Seimensho” in Namba

Both the noodles and the broth are really top-notch!

For lunch today I visited “JUN Otani Seimensho”, an udon restaurant in Namba, where I enjoyed a chiku tama ten bukkake (750 JPY).

The udon noodles are glistening beautifully!
I think this is something worth looking forward to!



The udon noodles are bit on the thin side.

I squeeze on the lemon, and…


This is delicious!
A smooth and slippery texture combined with a perfect stretchiness and a GUNYUMUNYU texture makes for wonderful noodles!
The overall balance of this udon dish is just outstanding—just my kind of thing!

The soft-boiled egg tempura is also perfectly soft-boiled. (^^



In this restaurant, it took just a bit over ten minutes for the udon to be prepared, but while I was waiting, I was served this mini kake udon for free, with the waiter / waitress saying, “Sorry to keep you waiting. Please eat this first.”

This free item was presented to customers who were waiting longer than others!

If I can eat freshly fried [egg tempura] in an udon restaurant, it’s no skin off my nose no matter how long I have to wait, but this kind of service does make me happy!

I had also wanted to try some warm noodles too, so I was really grateful for this. (^^

Glistening udon


You an enjoy the GUNYUMUNYU texture, even in the hot broth—these are fantastic noodles!

The broth has the proper bonito flavor, which makes it delicious!







Apart from the standard items, the menu also has unusual items, and it has a good range of set meals too.



My lunch visit was a little on the late side, but there was still an endless stream of customers coming in!

Both the udon and the broth are really top-notch! in this restaurant!
