Awesome udon shop is on Osaka underground city

The second day of the trip. Our hotel prepared light breakfast (small bread, boiled egg, orange juice, coffee and so on) for us at small cafeteria.
But we didn’t eat them except orange juice.

A, our hotel was it. “Business Hotel Nissei”.

Appearance, Business Hotel Nissei (Osaka2014-1)



There’re much foreign tourists because it is close to Namba station and it cost us cheaper.

Why didn’t we had breakfast at the hotel though breakfast was included ?
The reason is that. This udon shop !!!

Umeda Hagakure . It is on the under ground of Umeda station building.


From 11 a.m.

I didn’t know about the shop, but I followed him without thinking.
I usually prepare my trip by myself, but this time he made our trip’s plan completely. It’s comfortable 🙂
Just I follow him, he takes me to good restaurants.
(I only took our plane tickets and reserved our hotel :P)

We got to there before the shop’s opening time and needless to say we were first comer. I had thought that we could be enter the shop  even we got to the shop just before the opening time. But there was a long line following us when the shop opened 😛

The chef warmly welcomed us and the shop was full when we were taken the order. Wow !

I ordered a warm Kamatama (かまたま, 600 yen)
After a while, such a plate was put on the counter above our table.
Raw egg, sesami and green onions.

これがかまたまの具です(ノ∀`) 写真撮るため自分のテーブルに寄せたら、おこられたでー(ノ∀`)

Ingredients of kamatama.I was wondering that I have to mix by myself and I put it on my table. Then the chef with my udon said to me, “Novice, don’t touch it. I’ll do for you now :)”
I felt relieved.

Well,,,, Every toppings and pure soy sauce was put on the udon !!  Wooow ! Beautiful !!!

End he mixed them altogether. He gave us perfect service 🙂 I kept quiet and waited like child.

Finished !And he said to me, “Hold two with chopsticks and eat”. I did as he said.

The udon was smooth and springy. I hadn’t eaten such a udon ever. Is that udon ? What is udon that I had ever eaten. Quite different from udon that I had ever eaten !

He ordered this. Cold Kijyoyu udon (生じょうゆ, 600 yen). It was also great.
Grated daikon radish, green onion and sudachi.

Bukkake, Umeda Hagakure (Osaka2014-1)


Sharp flavor of Citrus sudachi was good !
Texture of cold udon differ from warm udon 🙂

By the way, we shared it….. tempura – Half boiled egg and chikuwa (半熟玉子とちくわのてんぷら, 300 yen)

It was good enough. But we were so impressed by udon and the tempura lost those udon as presense completely:P

AH, I want to eat the udon again very much. Now !
