Today, we are pleased to introduce you to the famous Osaka ramen restaurant, So-Daishou, a ramen restaurant in Osaka, Japan. Shio-gensui is franchised and has more than 20 stores around the Kansai region, but this So-Daisho has only one store.
Soy sauce ramen!
The ramen and tsukemen menu available at Sodai Shoyu is…
Kurodaishou (black soy sauce): 800 yen
Natural salt ramen 800 yen
Koikuchi soy sauce ramen 900 yen
Shoyu tsukemen 950 yen (add 150 yen for a large portion)
Shio tsukemen 950 yen (add 150 yen for a large portion)
Five types of ramen (prices include tax). One thing to note is that the three types of ramen are not available in large portions, so if you want a large portion, you must add more noodles with a “Kae-dama (Refill)” (extra 150 yen).
However, So-Daishou offers a variety of set menus that include ramen and a la carte dishes such as gyoza, and especially during weekday lunch hours, ordering a set menu may be more economical than filling your stomach with a doubled ball. We recommend the restaurant’s most popular fried rice set (priced at 1,250 yen). The fried rice, which won the Kansai Champion on a TV program featuring fried rice, is served with ramen…
Kurodaishou (black soy sauce)
This is the origin of So-Daisho, Kurodaishou (black soy sauce). Although the name “black” is used, the soup does not look so black, so it is not such a frightening ramen! The toppings are simple, reminiscent of old Chinese soba noodles: a piece of roasted pork, chopped green onions, naruto, and bamboo shoots.
The soup is made from re-finished soy sauce from Yuasa, Wakayama Prefecture, and has an elegant flavor with no corners and a mild, slightly sweet taste. Seafood and animal broth are added to the base, creating an elegant yet rich and flavorful soup.
The yuzu peel and charred onions that are added to the soup as an aromatic garnish add a nice accent to the soup, and the onion aroma spreads in the mouth.
And the noodles thrown into such a soup are homemade noodles like fresh pasta of medium thickness. They are exceptional noodles! They can’t make these noodles in large quantities, so they don’t franchise them. Please go there to taste these noodles.
The appearance is quite ordinary. The flavor is also orthodox, soy sauce-based, but each grain of rice in this fried rice is coated with oil, which is delicious!
And the light fried rice goes well with the soy sauce ramen broth! I guess that’s why it is orthodox in flavor…
Open until midnight
So-Daishou is only a four-minute walk from Tenjinbashisuji Rokuchome Station on the Osaka Metro Tanimachi Line (Sakaisuji Line), the nearest station, and they welcome customers even when the restaurant is about to close.
The restaurant is open even at closing time. They cook soup even in the middle of the night, so there is no early closing due to running out of soup.
