I mentioned that I had work in Osaka. Well, Osaka is a big place. I'd never heard of Yao Station before. When I asked a Tokyo friend if there were any ramen shops in Yao, he laughed. "I don't know, but that place is kind of shady!"
You see, Yao is on the famed Kintetsu train line, servicing the southern lip of Osaka. Most of this southern border looks the same. Four and five story nondescript apartments, old shotengai, and rust. If you know Saitama . . . it is a lot like that.
So the ramen here at RISE, which stands for Ramen Interact Safe Entertainment (??), wasn't that hot. You could probably say it is the best in Yao, though that would just be success by exclusiveness.
Ramen Interact Safe Entertainment.
I wish this ramen was better. Yao is only a few minutes from Nagase Station, home of the Osaka Ramen School that I am helping to promote. Looks like the best ramen in the neighborhood is made by . . . you!
