Tsurutontan Soemoncho


Being thoroughly informed of the deliciousness of food that Osaka had to offer, we were fully prepared to have multiple meals a day during our short stay there. While I would not recommend this plan to anyone, it did lead us to trying the best udon I have ever had the pleasure of eating.
