“Ramen Yashichi” in Nakatsu

Now I know why there's a queue for this place every single day! Their extremely creamy classic chicken broth was amazing!

For today’s lunch I went to “Ramen Yashichi”, a ramen restaurant in Nakatsu. There isn’t anybody in Osaka who doesn’t know this restaurant – it is very famous for the long queues it attracts.

I had to work during lunch so I nearly missed eating, but fortunately when I passed this restaurant at 3:30pm there were only 2 people waiting to be seated! Even better – the restaurants ‘sold out’ sign was nowhere to be seen! I couldn’t miss out on this opportunity so I joined the queue and within 15 minutes I was enjoying their traditional Yashichi ramen.

‘Soy sauce ramen’: 730 yen.
It is the first time I have eaten this restaurants’ standard soy sauce ramen.

I tasted the soup first.

(゚Д゚)Yummy!(゚Д゚)Yummy!

Wow!! So good! Now I understand the queues!
With just one mouthful I instantly understood why this restaurant has queues every day. There’s no way to describe how the beautifully creamy chicken broth complements the rich soy sauce. I couldn’t stop myself from drinking a few more mouthfuls of soup before I got on to the noodles!

The noodles are somewhat thick.

Wow! The noodles are delicious too! The consistent texture and favor of the noodles go really well with a generous amount of soup.

The restaurant opens at 11:00am everyday, but the queue starts to form from around 10:00am. Today, the soup hadn’t been sold out at closing time (4:00pm), so a few of the people behind me in the queue were also lucky enough to eat here. For people who don’t want to queue much it might be a good idea to come around 3:30pm like I did. However, be aware that the chances of the soup being sold out increases.
