-Cut back to Reminisce Japan-
We had no lack of eating places in our three nights at Osaka, but we chose to visit Ippudo Ramen twice.
And it was there that I fell in love with noodles topped with oodles of sinfully fragrant garlic oil.
If you visit Ippudo, order this: the Akamaru with egg.
The Akamaru, which features pork broth enhanced with special blended miso paste, is served with thin Hakata-style noodles, buta bara (pork belly) and topped scallions… and a delightful dollop of aromatic brown garlic oil.
Stir a little with your spoon, and the inviting creamy-white broth beneath unveils itself.
Yes: Ippudo’s Akamaru
