I went to Kamishinjo in Osaka to see my friend who is a Buddhist and visit his temple. I asked him to take me to his favorite place to have lunch together, and we went to a ra-men shop “Seiha”. I ordered a ra-men with soy source based soup (750yen), a marinated egg (100yen) and bamboo shoots (100yen) for toppings.
This kind of ra-men (served in a big bowl, fish soup, and some slices of smoked chicken, etc.) is a kind of new style and very popular in these days My friend, the Buddhist wearing T-shirt sitting next to me was sipping salt flavored ra-men, and he looked like he has was just a man, all concentrated on the ra-men in front of him.
