5. Oodles of Noodles
Of all the different types of udon noodles in Japan, kitsune udon is the bowl you’ll want to hunt down in Osaka, featuring thick wheat flour noodles in a dashibased stock, with triangles of aburaage (deep-fried tofu) making for an ultrasavory topping. Make a pit stop at
Tei Matsubaya, renowned for its perfectly balanced home-style version.
