Dashi is Life

Honmachi is an area in the center of Osaka. It sits in between the twin downtowns Umeda and Namba, but lacks the vibrant bar and restaurant scene they have. But in the middle of Honmachi sits a great ramen shop, and maybe the best fish-themed shop in the city.

Gyogyogyo can loosely be translated as fish fish fish, which should give away what their specialty is. The featured ramen is the dashi ga inochi no shio ramen, or dashi is life salt ramen. It’s a double chicken and fish soup that still keeps from being too much flavor at ¥780. Their two other bowls are pretty different but maintain the fish theme: sardine black soy sauce ramen for ¥830 and super-thick, super-rich fish ramen for ¥880.

In my visit to Gyogyogyo I ordered the dashi ga inochi shio ramen. The broth itself keeps it simple, being easy to drink if a bit salty. The toppings, though, are too many to count. Baby corn and snow peas sit atop the elegantly decorated bowl, enticing you to think this meal of fish and chicken is healthy. The piece of chicken in the bowl has a zesty lemon flavor, which keeps your palate fresh. The strangest thing in there is the fish chashu, which takes the simple flavors of the soup and combines them with some texture.

Gyogyogyo sits right in between Honmachi and Shinsaibashi, making it easy to visit from either location, and easy to get to from anywhere in the city. There isn’t more than a counter with a few seats, but it’s not too busy to have to wait unless you bring a large group.
