The long queues in front of the door speak volumes: The Japanese noodle soups at Naniwa are legendary.
The small corner restaurant has already been there for more than a quarter of a century, and despite all the modesty typical of that country, there is a certain feeling of pride regarding the hype surrounding the ramen, which are served there. First you have to wait. Once inside, things go quickly. Within a few minutes one of the 20 noodle soups steams in a traditional porcelain bowl on the table. Don’t be disturbed by the slurping sounds originating from your Japanese table neighbours: This is a custom and also an indication that the food is “oishi”, or in other words: it tastes delicious.
