If you are looking into grabbing a quick bite in Osaka, then Ippudo Umeda is a place you should consider. Opened well past midnight, Ippudo Umeda is a popular ever-busy spot for people looking for a quick ramen fix in the middle of the night. You order your food outside the restaurant before you take a seat. The food then arrives at your table more or less as soon as you sit down. However, you might have to share a table with strangers, which can get quite interesting, especially on weekends.
The best-selling dish at Ippudo Umeda is the Akamaru Modern ramen which contains pieces of chashu barbequed pork, seaweed, chilli sauce, and a soft-boiled egg swarmed in a tonkotsu broth. Another dish worth looking out for is the gyoza fried rice dish.
